Continuing as your President for the 2013 year, I would like to congratulate the Directors and their Committees for the excellent support during our 2012 edition of the Renfrew Fair. It was an unprecedented trying experience due to the weather. However, every organization has trying years and we must optimistically look forward to a year of normality in 2012.
Once again, let us look forward to a friendly competition, family entertainment and family involvement that have been prevalent for many decades.
Thanks to all fair supporters on behalf of the present Directors.
Robert A. Johnston
