Marg Verkuil, President of the Drumbo Agricultural Society welcomed all to the Drumbo Fair Appreciation Night held Friday, October 19th. Greetings from our ambassador, Reta McLean, were read. Sponsors, directors, volunteers and the fair’s award winners gathered for a social evening. A slideshow featuring the 2012 fair was shown while guests enjoyed wine and cheese and other goodies.

The grand champion quilts were on display. Quilt, hand quilted was made by Bernice Dickout and the quilt, machine-quilted was made by Deb Desforges. These, along with posters made by Katherine Pravdin and Brynn Dickau will go on to competition at the District level next week.

Marg thanked the sponsors and presented Certificates of Appreciation to those at the Platinum and Gold levels. Volunteers were recognized for their contribution to the success of the 2012 fair.
