You’re invited to a fun day in the country at the Mount Lehman Fall Fair, where there will be something for everyone.

The fair is this Saturday, Sept. 15, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It starts with a pancake breakfast from 8 to 10 and winds up with a British Pub night dance at 7 p.m. It all takes place at Mount Lehman Community Hall and the adjacent Mt. Lehman elementary school. Opening ceremonies begin at 10:30 a.m.

A special feature will be a collection of royal memorabilia that Donna Kingman and her daughter Suzanne McKay put together, with the help of the Governor General’s office, the British High Commissioner and other commercial sources. It is a special tribute to Queen Elizabeth’s 60 year Diamond Jubilee celebration.

The key exhibit consists of photos, Diamond Jubilee souvenirs, and everything British pertaining to our Queen, even her trips to Canada throughout her reign.

The exhibition will be at the school library from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There is no admission to the fair or any of the many exhibits on hand.

Organizers are also paying homage to Ms. Agnes “Gussie” Mcphail and to Ms. Helena Gutteridge, both being young Mount Lehman woman who went on to fame in other areas of our province in the early part of the twentieth century. In addition, there will be an ongoing video tribute to our Queen and pioneers of our area in the history room.
