Fair attendance up 37 per cent

The ALAC would like to thank everyone who helped to make this year’s Fall Fair the success it was.

The ALAC would like to thank everyone who helped to make this year’s Fall Fair the success it was, the vendors, the exhibitors and the people who came to see it all.

In particular we would like to mention Harvey & Cheryl Truax and their crew – the registrars, who we see on Friday when we bring our exhibits in and the judges, who we never see but do such a great job of deciding where to awards the ribbons.

All three costumes in the Trashion Show were so unique and different that Alice Smith, Shannon Heppner and Gail Ponto were each awarded a first place ribbon.

Attendance was up by 37 per cent: 455 people came through the door, and exhibitors were up by 25 per cent and there were 38 more items entered.

The Kuskanax Lodge, What’s Brewing on Broadway, Caffe Lago, Betty Coleman, Alice Smith and Cheryl Truax all deserve thanks for the prizes for the raffle and door prizes; Deb Guest Catering for the delicious lunch that was available to the public; Richard Cann and his crew for all their help in putting up and taking down the tables; and School District #10 for the use of the display standards.

We would also like to thank the Nakusp Library, Nakusp Museum and the Arrow Lake Historical Society for bringing in Mr. Peter Blundell of Guardian Estate Appraisals who spent the day giving Nakusp its very own Antiques Appraisals Roadshow. Mr. Blundell was kept busy from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. with only breaks for lunch and supper. Many people enjoyed just listening and learning while others were gratified to hear the value of their items. We hope they will bring him again next year.
