PRESIDENTS MESSAGE
As the President of the Desboro Agricultural Society, I would like to invite you to this year's Fall Fair. The theme for this year is "Celebrating Country Sunshine", and I certainly hope that we do have good weather on Labour Day weekend for the fair. As always we are trying to bring back your favourite events, and we are adding a few new things that we hope you will enjoy. One change for this year is that the Monday night kick off concert will be held at the new Desboro Music Hall (the old Anglican Church) and will feature a variety of local talent. Also, "The Becketts" are returning on Friday night to entertain us in the Big Top under the stars! Friday concert goers can check out the exhibits in the arena ahead of the show. Please have a look through this booklet and find something you can make, prepare, grow, or enter in this year's fair.

Wayne Elder
President
