The summer has flown by; I have been busy in my garden weeding, picking vegetables and canning fruits and vegetables. Fair season has been in full swing for a couple months and will be winding down soon.
I worked diligently with judges, grange members, and committee members to create guidelines (using the framework from Piscataquis Fair) for Fair Educational Exhibits. I worked with Sharon at State Headquarters to get information out to fair judges and all Maine Agricultural Fairs in preparation for the Fair Season. As the Maine State Fairs are moving closer to the end of the season and I will collect data from them to use for making next fair season more productive.
The Ag Committee is now working on the Maine AG in the Classroom Annual meeting to be held November 2, 2017 as we will be prepping and serving the food to all MAITC participants. We will be looking for pies to serve that night and people to serve the meal. More information will be sent out on this.
Reminder there will be an Ag Luncheon on Thursday during State Grange. Roast pork and the fixings for lunch and the speaker is Amber Lambke of Maine Grains located at the Somerset Grist Mill. Get your reservations in as the reservation deadline is early October so don’t procrastinate too long.
