A Celebration of Community and Tradition
The annual Sutton Fair Banquet is a beloved tradition that has been celebrated by residents of Georgina, Ontario for many years. The banquet, which is typically held in January, was moved to a new night of the last Saturday in February. Despite the change in date, the banquet remained a special event that brought the community together to enjoy a night of great food, music, and celebration.
One of the highlights of the Sutton Fair Banquet is the delicious food that is served. This year, guests were treated to a mouth-watering spread that included chicken, roast beef, salad, vegetables, and dessert. The food was prepared by skilled chefs who put a lot of care and attention into every dish.
In addition to the fantastic food, guests were also treated to music from a professional DJ. The music created a lively and fun atmosphere that encouraged guests to dance and have a great time. As Jason Kay, a member of the Sutton Agricultural Society, put it, “It is an evening of Ambassadors.” Indeed, the banquet is a celebration of the community and its ambassadors, who work tirelessly to make the Sutton Fair a success.
Greetings from Ambassadors
One of the most special moments of the banquet was when Madelyn Grossi brought greetings from the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE). Maddy presented Jason with a gift consisting of a framed photo of memories from last year’s CNE experience. This thoughtful gesture highlighted the strong sense of community and connection that has been created between the CNE and the Sutton Agricultural Society.
The banquet also provided an opportunity for the Senior and Junior Ambassadors for the Sutton Fair to speak about their experiences. Abbie Velocci, the Senior Ambassador for Sutton Fair 2022, shared her memories and insights from last year’s fair. Makenna Coates, the Junior Ambassador, also brought greetings to the guests. Both ambassadors are excellent representatives of the Sutton Agricultural Society and embody the spirit of the fair.
Finally, the banquet was an opportunity to thank Keith Clark, the outgoing Past-President of the Sutton Agricultural Society. Jason presented Keith with some parting gifts as a token of appreciation for his hard work and dedication to the community.
After dinner, door prizes were drawn and given out to guests. The Junior members of the society were especially excited to have a chance to win a special stuffed animal door prize. Overall, the Sutton Fair Banquet was a wonderful celebration of community and tradition. The Sutton Agricultural Society found a way to bring people together and continue this beloved tradition. We can’t wait to see what they have in store for us next year!
