Thank you to Rich­mond Fair vol­un­teers

Sherbrooke Record - - EDITORIAL -

DEAR EDITOR;

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.
