Aldergrove fair group wants your input

The Aldergrove Agricultural Festival and Fairs Association's (AAFFA) next general meeting has been rescheduled to Feb. 18, 7 p.m. at Coghlan Hall.

It is a special meeting to vote on a name change of the Aldergrove Festival Days Society. For those wanting to vote and who are not yet a member of AAFFA please come with your $5 membership fee.

The AAFFA also wants to vote on abandoning the soap box races this year, unless the Fire Fit competition returns at the same time.

"Instead of the soap boxes at the mini-fest we want to introduce at the main fair in July a replacement of the soapbox with a mini car track in several classes and mediums, such as zucchini (or other vegetable) racers, wooden car kits from Home Depot, Lego cars and an open class of 'crazy' wheels," said AAFFA secretary Suzanne Robinson.

The last item to vote on is a proposal to have the parade return on the Saturday before the main fair in July.
