Support

Thank-you for taking an active interest in the Sydenham Fall Fair. This long standing tradition could not continue without the help and support of wonderful people like yourself. There are 4 key ways which you can help ensure you are doing your part to keep the Sydenham Fall Fair going for generations to come.

1. Encourage

The easiest and probably most important way you can support the Sydenham Fall Fair is by encouraging your children to take part. Here are some suggestions on how you can do just that:

  • take a look through the FAIR BOOK so you are familiar with what projects your child can undertake
  • keep project supplies on hand so the next time your child has a free afternoon or says "I'm Bored!" then you will be ready to go with a fun activity
  • order your child a CRAFT KIT or RACING KIT to assemble over the summer
  • sign up for the GARDEN CLUB and plant a garden with your child
  • help them raise a GOATPIGLAMB, MINIATURE PONY or CALF for the animal clubs
  • help them to show off the family pet at our PET SHOW.
  • "LIKE" the Sydenham Fall Fair on FACEBOOK so you can keep up to date on all important information about the fair

2. Volunteer

It takes a whole lot of helpful hands every year to put together the Sydenham Fall Fair. Here are just a few ways you could put your time could be of use:

  • Attending the fair with your childs class (speak with their September teacher)
  • Become a member of the Fall Fair planning committee and share your ideas with us. (If you don't have time to come to the meetings we'd still love your ideas! Email them to Heather below).
  • Help the committee seek out and secure new sponsors.
  • Help with our spring/fall fundraiser.
  • Help with registration, set-up and/or take down the week of the fair.
  • Demonstrate or run an agricultural activity at the fair.
  • Bring child friendly livestock to the fair.
  • Bring and display your farm machinery at the fair.
  • You have a skill/talent that would be helpful to our planning committee.
