The annual North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Association Speech and Talent Night was held in the Lion’s Hall on June 29. The event was well supported by the public and organizers appreciated their interest and participation.
Snacks and a cash bar were provided, with comfortable seating and good folks to chat with.
The event is provided for the current year’s Ambassador candidates to make a speech and perform a talent to the audience during the evening’s event.
Pre-chosen judges are on hand to score each candidate during the presentations, and the judges scores are then carried forward to the coronation event in August where the new reigning Ambassador and two Vice-Ambassadors are named.
A treat for all who attended where a number of past NTFFRA royalty who attended the event, took the time to participate in the evenings 100th Year Celebration for Barriere, and of course posed for a group photo.
The NTFFRA Ambassador program, previously called the Pageant, has been running since 1950. This year marks the 65th anniversary of the program and of course also the fall fair and rodeo.
“There was a great turnout to this year’s Speech and Talen Night for our current Ambassador Candidates,” said Ambassador Program chair Laura Mairs, “We were really happy to see so many of the past royalty able to attend and share in the fun.”
