During the 2013 Aldergrove Fair, the Aldergrove Agricultural Association’s Exhibit Hall in the Kinsmen Community Centre was packed with displays. Featuring baking and canning, eggs, gardening, wine, beer, fine arts, needlework, crafts, and photography submitted from those as young as three years old to adults in their mid-80s, it was a wide range of entries. The judges worked very hard to determine blue ribbon winners.
Visitors admiring the many fine displays were also invited to cast their votes for the People’s Choice Award in the Overall Exhibit/Display and the Best Photographic Entry.
There were entries from residents of Aldergrove, Langley, Abbotsford, Maple Ridge, and even Lake Errock.
Out of 283 entries received Aldergrove residents won both categories: Pat Murray won the best display for his craft woodworking entry, The Bison, which was created using five different types of wood using a method called intarsia.
Pat and his wife moved to Aldergrove from Surrey three years ago; he is already planning next year’s entry.
Aldergrove student, 17 year old Kassaundra Robson won the People’s Choice for best photograph and another of her photographs received the second most votes.
Each winner received a $25.00 Co-Op Gift Card, huge ribbon, and “bragging rights” for a year.
The Aldergrove Agricultural Association wishes to thank everyone who took the time to enter an exhibit or more, and to the many visitors who cast their votes. A special thanks go to the Otter Co-op for providing gift cards for the People’s Choice Winners.
