North Thompson Fall Fair elects 3 new directors at AGM

The new slate of officers for the coming term were all elected by acclamation

The North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Association held its annual pot luck supper and annual general meeting on Nov. 21, in the fall fair hall.

The pot luck supper was a huge success, and as usual everyone enjoyed the large selection of home cooked dishes and delectable desserts.

President Jill Hayward recognized Leslie Stirling and Donna Kibble for recent awards (the Canadian Fair Champion Award and the Roll of Honour Award respectively) made to them by the Canadian Association of Fairs and Exhibitions in Vancouver last month.

Hayward also presented Stirling, who was stepping down as treasurer, with a thank you gift on behalf of the fall fair for the 15 years she has been a board member.

The president was then recognized by the membership for being presented with a B.C. Community Achievement Award in April of this year in Victoria.

Ed Salle then took the chair for election of officers for the 2014/2015 term. Stepping down from the executive were; Leslie Stirling, Pam Simpson and Ken Beharrell.  Directors who still have one year to serve are Bob Black, Jane Milburn and Carmen Ross.

A slate of 2014/2015 nominated officers was presented by nomination chair Marnie Piefer;

President: Jill Hayward

Vice -president Karl Rainer

Treasurer: Barb Denton

Recording Secretary: Nora Johnson

Directors: Gary Peifer, Darwin Johnson and Brian Sabyan.

There were no nominations from the floor, therefore the new slate of officers for the coming term were all elected by acclamation.

The next monthly meeting of the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Association will take place on Jan. 21, 7 p.m. at the Ridge in the Volunteer Centre.   You can find more information on the organization, or on public riding in the North Thompson Agriplex this winter,  by going to www.fallfair-rodeo or by going to the association’s official Facebook page called;  North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Association.
