Port Hardy prepares A Royal afFAIR

PORT HARDY-Mount Waddington Fall Fair committee selects jubilee theme for Sept. 8-9 event at Don Cruickshank Memorial Arena

PORT HARDY—The annual Mount Waddington Fall Fair will pay homage to Queen Elizabeth’s diamond jubilee when it kicks of the 2012 Fair in Port Hardy Sept. 8 with the theme “A Royal AfFair.”

The fair will run through Sept. 9 at the Don Cruickshank Memorial Arena showcasing gardening, canning, preserving and various crafts skills of North Islanders, as well as booths featuring a number of businesses and service groups.

The Fall Fair Committee has scheduled a meeting for 7 p.m. June 4 at the arena and prospective volunteers or those just looking for more information are invited to attend.

In the coming weeks, the fair’s website is expected to be accessible and booth rental and exhibit list forms will also be made available.

One entry class that will see substantial changes this year is photography, which will feature the same categories for all age groups and trophies for the aggregate point-winner in each age group.

“With people able to print their own photos, entries in the photography classes have exploded over the past few years,” said Brenda Fleeton of the executive. “So now there are more rewards.”
