Thank You !
Thanks is not enough
On behalf of the board of directors and staff at the Abbotsford Agrifair THANK YOU to our volunteers, sponsors, all of our exhibitors, entertainers and various contractors. We simply could not have done it without you!
The weather was awesome, the entertainment was top notch, and the changes did not go unnoticed. President Ernie Silveri states, ``our goal was to create an event our community would want to come and see, and they came!``
The gates were busy all weekend. With the new Fraserway RV family building providing so many free activities, the strolling entertainment keeping crowds happy, the addition of the Global FMX Bike show and returning favorite Racing Pigs & Ducks FAMILIES were everywhere.
The community goal was only one of the many the board strived to reach. Media Relations & Vice President Stephanie Nelson stated “this is the first year we have had media from Vancouver recognize the fair and many requests from Vancouver Social Media personalities ask for Media Accreditation`` reaching the goal of getting the buzz out there.
Treasurer Bob Street happily stated ``we surpassed budgeted sponsorship and we have preliminary figures showing our attendance was up from last year``, another two goals reached.
President Silveri thanked the Volunteers at the appreciation dinner held Wednesday evening, acknowledging that without volunteers and sponsors Agrifair would not be the success it is and welcomed everyone back for 2017 to celebrate Canada`s 150th birthday.
