A HANDS-ON DAIRY EXPERIENCE AT THE WELLESLEY FAIR
Some 200 grade-school students from across the region participated in the 164th Wellesley-North Hope Fall Fair’s Dairy Education program on Tuesday. The students had the opportunity to learn about the dairy industry in Canada, ask questions of local producers and industry representatives before finishing off the day with some old-fashioned homemade ice cream. It is one of the initiatives the fair has developed to help keep it striving, in light of being only one of three remaining fall fairs in Waterloo Region. Among this week’s participants were Olivia Clement (top), a local dairy farmer who helped to teach the students where milk comes from and answered related questions, and Riley Carter (above right), a Wellesley Public School student who enjoyed the day of education.
