2013 Homecraft President’s Message
It is my privilege to be Homecraft President for the 169th annual Markham Fair. The chosen theme of this year’s Fair is Homecoming, which embraces our heritage while recognizing the importance of our community.
Year after year, volunteers and exhibitors work diligently to create an entertaining, educational and memorable experience for you, our visitors. I want to extend a special thank you to my Homecraft Executive, and to all committee volunteers who have worked tirelessly to make this wonderful Fair happen.
Our Homecraft division features fine artisanal crafts, Christmas décor, intricate quilts, photographs, antiques, school children’s artwork, floral arrangements, senior displays, and vegetable showcases. Not to mention the delicious baking and mouth-watering preserves.
I encourage you to meet our vendors in the Commercial Exhibits buildings who bring an array of wares too numerous to mention.
Take in the sights and sounds of the tractor pulls, the entertainment tent, and the demolition derby. Check out the Agri-Food tent and get both the hands on, and interactive experience to learn about the relationship between agriculture and your food. Hit up the midway for a thrill, and play a game of chance, or go animal and visit Old MacDonald’s Barn!
There is something for everyone at the Markham Fair – let’s come together and make this year an unforgettable one!
Cathy Edwards, Homecraft President 2013
