Kessa Iddison – 2016 Senior Ambassador
I can hardly believe that it is fair time again! On behalf of the Sutton Agricultural Society I would like to welcome you to the 162nd Sutton Fair and Horse Show. The past year has gone by so fast and I am sad to see it coming to an end. It seems like just yesterday I was crowned the 161st Sutton Fair Ambassador. As an ambassador, I have had so much fun and am filled with pride as I am able to represent our amazing community, fair and agricultural society.
In being the Sutton Fair Ambassador, it has given me many opportunities to become involved and meet amazing people. I have had the pleasure of attending the OAAS meeting, the Sutton Santa Claus parade, the OAAS convention, the District 5 Competition and many more. Being involved in these events has made me feel both honoured and proud to come from a community with such love and compassion. I have learned so much from this journey and continue to learn and grow from every experience that comes my way. I look forward to represent everyone in the 2017 CNE Ambassador Competition.
Madelyn Grossi – 2016 Junior Ambassador
It’s my favourite time of the year! Welcome to the 162nd Sutton Fair and Horse Show. You know what they say, “time flies when you’re having fun” and I sure have had nothing but great fun being your 2016/2017 Junior Ambassador. This past year I have represented the fair at various different events and celebrated exciting moments in our community. A few of my favourite events were the RCMP Musical Ride, dropping the puck to start the Georgina Ice season and seeing the smiling faces of all different ages from our float in the Sutton Santa parade. While representing the Agricultural Society it’s amazing how much I have learned and how many wonderful people I got the chance to meet. At the OAAS meeting I learned so much about our fair and spent the day with amazing people. Over the past year I have experienced a whole other world of opportunities I would have never gotten too. I would like to thank the community and the Agricultural Society for making my year as Junior Ambassador a year to remember.
On behalf of the Town of Georgina and Council, I want to welcome everyone to the 162nd Sutton Fair and Horseshow. This year’s fair is particularly worthy of celebration as residents and visitors alike celebrate a major milestone – Canada’s Sesquicentennial. It is amazing to think how this annual family event actually pre-dates Canadian Confederation by some 12 years! I invite you to check out the Fair’s numerous agriculture and livestock displays and shows, live musical entertainment, food, and traditional favourites such as the monster trucks, and demolition derby. While the Fair may have changed over the years, what hasn’t changed is the great community spirit, welcoming and friendly people, and sense of Canadian pride that you will find throughout this event.
Mayor Margaret Quirk
