Letters: Fall Fair help needed

Annual Sooke Fall Fair could use a few more helping hands

This year we are celebrating the family farm and we are looking for photos of your farm, no matter how small, with photos of families in the yards with gardens or/and animals.

We would like to put your photo on the cover of our Sooke Fall Fair magazine. We are making a collage of all the farming operations in Sooke Region which covers East Sooke to Port Renfrew.

Please send your photos to Ellen Lewers at mrslewersfarmhouse@shaw.ca and we will get them off to the printers. Please attach your name or the name of your farm if you have one and we will make a list of all the farming operations in the region to let the community know where they can find fresh produce, eggs and meat. This is  a great opportunity to showcase our region.

We look forward to your photos and also to your entries. There will be plenty of opportunity for theme entries “Celebrating the Family Farm.”

If you have any ideas to pass on do not hesitate, we will look at them. Send them to the above email or better yet, join our fine team at the Sooke Fall Fair. We are looking for some help in the produce, literary and hobby sections. Please email at the above or call 250-812-2830 if you can help.
