Fair fallout

Editor:

The 1st Annual Spring Fair was very successful because of farmers like Tiesja Huscroft who attended from Creston along with farmers from Cranbrook, Grand Forks, Slocan Valley, Edgewood & our local farmers.  Kudos to Jessica Smith for helping organize the Fair, Don & Irene Hill for volunteering their time.

Tiesja was impressed that we have such a wonderful Exhibition grounds in our area as they have nothing to compare it to in Creston, which is known as a farming community.

Farming is so important, we have approximately 41 thousand households in the West Kootenay / Boundary area and if each household spent $10.00 a week on locally produced food this would generate 21 million 320 thousand dollars annually for our local economy.  Which is quite astounding.

We encourage the public to support local farmers where they can and help keep valuable dollars in local communities and keep farmers in business.

Please mark your calendar for the 2nd Annual Spring Fair May 2nd 2015 - See you at the Fall Fair Sept. 20th & 21st.

President
