The Rock Creek and Boundary District Fair Association held their annual general meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 21 at the fairgrounds pavilion.

Rock Creek resident Les Jackman chaired the AGM. Elected (all by acclamation) to the executive and board for the coming year are:

President: Bill Bosovich

Vice-President: Ilana Fraser

Secretary: Rachel Lautard

Treasurer: Lisa Sims

Directors: Lincoln Blaine, Dean Corbett, Katherine Delisle, Rebecca Lindquist, Danny Nakatsu, Scott Petrie, Pierre Sinclaire, Ian Smith and Carol Thom.

The outgoing board reported that the grounds had quite a bit of maintenance work done last year. A new floor was put on the dais, 86 new energy-efficient light fixtures were installed, five new yard lights, wiring was installed to enable service to proposed gatehouse, 44 gallons of paint were applied to the barn/bleachers, 40 new benches were built, five energy efficient fridges put in, an on-demand hot water system, new sanitizer and floor in kitchen. As well, volunteers painted the pavilion lobby, the sidewalk around the Bridesville food booth was repaired, the electrical sockets at animal wash rack were changed and a new lawnmower was purchased.

The AGM heard budget and planning committee chair Ted Rexin report that $229,937was spent on a total budget of $245,937, coming in under budget by $16,415.

“This is due, in most part, from lower operating costs and the funds that were set aside for the new gatehouse project that was postponed,” said Rexin’s report.

Outgoing president Lincoln Blaine offered special thanks to Rexin for his service over the past three years as director and vice-president and to our many other volunteers.

The meeting also saw the presentation of lifetime membership pins to Art Harfman and Mary Lautard for their years and countless hours of service to fair.

The next meeting of the fair association will be on Wednesday, Feb. 18 at 7 p.m. at the fairgrounds.
