Jessica Ferguson- 2023 Ancaster Fair Ambassador
Hello everyone, what an interesting past few years it has been. There have been several different challenges for us all. The Ancaster Agricultural Society is glad to be welcoming back the community for the 173rd Ancaster Fall Fair. My name is Jessica Ferguson, and I am so excited to represent the Ancaster Agriculture Society as the 2023 Fair Ambassador. Without our many volunteers, members and exhibitors who work so hard throughout the year the Ancaster fair would not be what it is today, THANK YOU! The many opportunities that I have experienced as the fair ambassador are unending. Whether it be the OAAS Convention, CNE Competition or any other events at the fair, each one of them has offered me many new learning experiences. I look forward to welcoming everyone to the fair in September to celebrate agriculture and our community while exploring this year’s theme of “wheeling, dealing, and farm biz”. See you at the fair!
Thank you to our Ambassador Program Sponsors!
