Sooke Fall Fair seeks amusing farming stories for printing

Each month the Sooke Fall Fair holds a flea market on the last Saturday of month at the Sooke Community Hall. On May 31, as a prelude to the Literary Section of the 2014 Sooke Fall Fair, the date’s event will include storytelling, farm-related cookies i.e. haystacks and cowboy cookies, and farm animals.

Organizers want people to share their amusing farm stories and these will eventually find their way into a booklet of farm stories. To send your stories for consideration, email them to: sookefallfair@gmail.com.

The Sooke Fall Fair is a community fair that gives people an opportunity to congregate in the spirit of the “Rural Fair” philosophy. The philosophy embodies the spirit of volunteerism, families, local natural resources, and integration of young and old. This year’s fall fair takes place September 6 and 7.
