Thank you!

I can’t say enough thank you’s and praises to everyone who made this years event, our 11th annual, a great success! Our great hard working crew, Margaret MacDonald, Michael “tic” Houston, Jay Netherwood, Christina Kozmin, Cheryl Beasley, Dan Gasser, Cheryl Wells, Darcy Paquet, Suzanne Millaire, Lindsey Geroux, Des Desarmia, Sharon Monteith, Wayne Moore and our North Dundas representative, Gary Annable. Thank you to our sponsors who, without your generosity, we couldn’t make this happen: Canadian Heritage, SDG Counties, North Dundas Township, TD Bank, Lisa Buma, Optimal Show Experience and so many of the local individuals and businesses. Next year we will do it again, only this time I’m not just praying for no rain, but little wind too!
