KURT LANGMANN PHOTO Robin McIntosh and Karen Long are two stalwarts of the Aldergrove community and its special events such as Fair Days and Light Up Christmas.

Drumming up volunteers for Aldergrove Fair days

Aldergrove community volunteer keeps giving

Robin McIntosh is returning as president of the Aldergrove Festival Days Society (AFDS) this coming year, and hoping that Aldergrove residents will step up and join the cause.

Currently, Robin is actively seeking new corporate sponsors for the Festival this coming summer.`

Robin and his wife Sue have been involved in Aldergrove events since joining the Aldergrove Toastmasters about ten years ago.

Another Aldergrove couple, Mike and Karen Robinson were involved with Toastmasters and talked the McIntosh couple into joining the Festival Days Society as well.

Over those ten years Robin has been a tireless volunteer at the events hosted by the society, including serving as president of the society six times.

The Festival Days events include the annual Aldergrove Fair Days held every July and the Light-Up Aldergrove Christmas Parade and Parties held every December.

Aldergrove Fair Days has a long history here, as it was first founded in 1912 by the Aldergrove Agricultural Association (AAA). The AFDS and AAA have amalgamated and the two organizations hold their monthly meetings on the first Tuesday of each month, 7 p.m. at Coghlan Hall, 6795 – 256 Street, Aldergrove. They welcome new members to join them.

Robin is very busy as a data-base developer with the Vega corporation but enjoys spending his spare time helping make the community a better and more interesting place for residents.

Along with community volunteer, Karen Long, he promotes the value of community volunteerism.
