As we close the book on 2020 and look ahead to 2021, uncertainty is still before us. Our newly-elected Board is proud that we were able to host a Virtual Exhibition last summer and we are poised to do the same if circumstances require this.
One thing that is abundantly clear, agriculture and local food continue to be important to Canadians and important to the Region. More and more people have turned to growing and raising their own food, are experimenting more with canning and are passing their time doing homecraft activities. As interest in agriculture continues to grow, the Peterborough Agricultural Society plays an important role. As educators, as ambassadors and to continue to encourage and support our community.
Our local agricultural community has a long history of innovation, leadership and success. We hope to provide more stories and opportunities for you to learn about the agricultural leadership from times past to modern-day innovators.
As newly elected President of the Peterborough Agricultural Society, I truly Welcome you. We invite members of our community to connect and explore possible partnerships. We invite you to learn more about agriculture and to share your stories with us. Further, we hope that you discover that you too can participate in agriculture through the Peterborough Agricultural Society. Consider sharing your new skills as an exhibitor or share your stories and ideas with us. Whatever brought you here today, we hope that you continue to explore your curiosities.
