Sooke Fall Fair accept awards

Delegates attend conference and bring home kudos and ribbons

Sooke Fall Fair delegates, Henry Strong and Val Durr returned from the Annual B.C. Fairs Conference in Sun Peaks recently.  They proudly accepted two awards on behalf of local entrants whose exhibits competed provincially.

Jane Blaney’s quilt block ranked second overall and Sara Gilbert-Bernard’s photograph in the Junior section received Honourable Mention. Both entries were required to depict agriculture.

Sooke also received an evaluation of excellence by the provincial judge who visited the fair last September.   The Sooke Fall Fair is one of 49 agricultural fairs registered with the British Columbia Association of Agricultural Fairs and Exhibitions.
