The mandate of Ontario Agricultural Societies is:
Research the needs of the agricultural community and developing programs to meet those needs;
Holding agricultural exhibitions featuring competitions for which prize may be awarded;
Promoting the conservation of natural resources;
Encouraging the beautification of the agricultural community;
Supporting and providing facilities to encourage activities intended to enrich rural life; and;
Conducting or promoting horse races when authorized to do so by a by-law of the society.
What many people don’t know…
~ Societies are governed and report to the Ministry of Agriculture
~ The only volunteers allowed to receive compensation are the Secretary and the Treasurer
We need volunteers who share our vision to help us take COMBER FAIR into the FUTURE.
Meetings are the first Monday of each month.
