June Wesley displays the quilt that will be raffled off to raise funds for the 100th Anniversary Cookbook being published by the Sooke Fall Fair.

Key projects begin for 100th anniversary

The organizers of the Sooke Fall Fair are working hard at key projects that will be unfolding over the next few months.

Preparing for a 100th anniversary is no small undertaking, and the members of the Sooke Fall Fair are working hard at key projects that will be unfolding over the next several months.

Currently, they are focused on creating a 100th Anniversary Cookbook. This will be more than just a basic collection of recipes, says Ellen Lewers, vice-chair of the Sooke Fall Fair. The recipes will be presented through stories told from the perspective of the past 100 years of the fair.

This project has two main components. First, collect and compile the recipes. Second, publish the actual cookbook.

If you wish to contribute one of your “secret” or winning recipes, you have until March 15 to submit them. Send your submissions by email to Ellen Lewers at: mrslewers farmhouse@shaw.ca.

If you can, include a short story of your memories from past fall fairs: awards you won, family projects, or garden “fish-tales” (where the zucchini grew bigger than Jack’s beanstalk).

Also, if you have trophies from your labours, Lewers would love to hear from you.

The second part of the project — publishing the cookbook will require some financing. To that end, the co-ordinators of the Fall Fair will be auctioning off this beautiful quilt, which is hand sewn in the traditional manner, valued at $1,000. Tickets are $2 each and can be purchased at the Reading Room Cafe, the Log Cabin Wool Store, or through any of the members of the Sooke Fall Fair.

The actual raffle for this beautiful quilt will occur on April 27 downstairs at the Sooke Community Hall during their monthly flea market, held on the last Saturday of every month.
