Mr. and Mrs. Ayer

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Down from Nova Sco­tia for the first time in 5 years dur­ing Fair sea­son are Bud and Carol Ayer, hap­pily mar­ried cou­ple for over 50 years and 6th gen­er­a­tion of the Ayer’s family. Now I don’t know about you but that name rings a bell! Mr. Ayer, (Bud’s great, great, great great-grand­fa­ther) back in 1849 do­nated the land that we all have come to know as the Ayer’s Cliff Fair grounds. In its first years, the Fair would ride from town to town for 4 years un­til it called Ayer’s Cliff its home.

When ask­ing Mr. Ayer what he likes most about the Fair, he replies, with a child­ish smile: “I have to say the Ma­chin­ery; it’s im­pres­sive. I like Trac­tors and Tanks, there are no Tanks here but the ma­chin­ery is still nice.” They even got the chance to meet Emer­son Drive, the band that played Satur­day evening. I hope they en­joyed their time at the Fair.

On be­half of all the Fair-go­ers who en­joy it ev­ery year: Thank you Mr. Ayer!
