Message From The President

This marks my first year as president of the Sydenham Agricultural Society and considering I am not a farmer (I don’t even live in the country) I may not have been the obvious choice.

My personal connection and love for the Sydenham Fall Fair comes from my deep appreciation for farmers, for our planet and my excitement for food, education and celebrating tradition. It is my goal that this event helps our children better understand where the food they consume each day comes from and how it made its way to their table and how we create sustainability for the future.

Over my last 5 years of volunteering I have seen the great sense of pride and the character building that happens when our students build something with their hands, tend to a garden they planted, bake a pie or show off an animal they have raised in their barn.

Sydenham Fall Fair day is hands down one of my favorite days of the year and I hope it is one of yours too. Regardless of where you live if you have a love for food, education, tradition, or the environment consider volunteering with our committee.
