Fall fair and trade show coming up

With the Unity Agricultural Society’s annual fall fair and trade show coming up October
4 and 5, it’s time to start mounting those photos, finishing your sewing
projects and digging out the recipe books.

Ag society representative, Joan Sperle said, with some new prize sponsors, there are a few different things in the baking portion of the fall fair competition. In addition, organizers have added some categories to the preserves competitions to include items made with locally grown fruit.

Fall fair books can be purchased for $1 at Mitchell Agencies. Mitchell Agencies also has tags available to identify your entries.

Joan said she would “like to see everybody participate.” President Elaine Sperle pointed out your projects don’t have to be perfect to be entered into the fall fair. You never know what could happen!

Elaine also wanted to remind everyone that if you have something you are working on, you can bring it just for display, to show it off to the community. You do not have to enter your item into a specific category for competition.

Delta Co-op and Unity Credit Union are partnering again to put on a silver donation pancake breakfast on Saturday, October 5. Proceeds will go to the Unity Food Bank. During the rest of the fair hours, 3 to 9 p.m. Friday and 9 to 4 p.m. Saturday, the ag society will operate their food booth.

Joan pointed out that, with admission still costing only $2, a visit to the Unity Fall Fair and Trade Show remains “pretty cheap entertainment for a couple of hours.”
