Cobble Hill (Area C) Regional Director

It is with incredible pride that I find myself in the position of being able to write a “Welcome Back’ to all of our widespread residents to the Cobble Hill Fair, which is once again being presented by the Shawnigan Cobble Hill Farmers Institute and Agricultural Society, the Farmers Institute, after the enforced absence of 2 years.

This will be the 115th edition of the event and it will once again give members of our community the opportunity to engage, socialize and join in the entertainment events which will contribute to the enhancement of our community bonds.

At last, we have the chance to once again mingle with our friends, neighbours and families with all the social benefits that this brings.

We can come together and can walk together through the different displays and booths while discovering new businesses, hobbies, and traditions.

We can celebrate community pride with many of the things that make a town or an area special and evoke good feelings. It matters not if those things are big or small.

It is a great Family Fun Day Out, but more importantly, This is “US”

It’s a great opportunity to view local - maybe try new foods - perhaps even see a chance to volunteer with many of the great organizations that are a boon to our communities.

Also, a great shout out to all of the other organizations which exist for the betterment and support of the community. I do honestly believe that community events such as these create memorable moments for all our residents as they will not only showcase what we have to offer, but connect us all forever through these shared experiences, no matter our background, gender, or age.
