Thank you to Richmond Fair volunteers
The Quebec agricultural fair circuit came to an end this past weekend with the Richmond Fair being the last. This, however, was my first “kick at the can” as the secretary/treasurer of that event. I write this editorial, not as the secretary, but as the wife of an exhibitor.
I believe it is worth bringing to everyone’s attention, the hard work that the directors and volunteers put in to making the fair such a success. Not only did they do everything they could to make my life easier, but they did everything they could to make sure they met the requests and demands of the exhibitors, as they do every year.
They do this humbly and with comradery, not only during the four days of the fair, but for weeks before. I believe that what they do and what they give of themselves to make “The Fair” agreeable for everyone gets forgotten or hidden in the hubbub of it all.
For that reason, I would like to acknowledge what the directors and many volunteers do for our exhibitors and our guests, and to thank them for their hard work.
I believe that anyone who would be interested in becoming a volunteer at Richmond Fair, would find that working with the directors and current volunteers would be a favourable experience.
Thank you everyone.
