A HANDS-ON DAIRY EX­PE­RI­ENCE AT THE WELLES­LEY FAIR

The Woolwich Observer - - VENTURE -

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.
