t was Volunteer Appreciation Night for Sooke Fall Fair last week. Also celebrated were the B.C. Fair awards that Candace Linde and Ida McDonald brought home from the Conference in Sun Peaks last month. Sooke Fall Fair won the “Communication Award” which recognized the group’s year-round activities while promoting this year’s fair. This resulted in a 25 per cent increase in entries. The fair also received the “Milestone Award” honouring the 100th Anniversary. The hand-made centennial awards by Dave and Yvonne Court andthe 2013 Catalogue and Centennial Cookbook produced by Sandy Reber greatly contributed to this year’s success.
Rosettes were presented to Wendy Visser for her sewn apron and to Carolyn Cassar for the black and white photograph, both entries depicting B.C. agriculture and judged against other B.C. Fairs entries.
Awards will be on display during the Christmas Craft Market held at the Community Hall, December 7.
