Hello! My name is Colleen Danner and I have had the privilege and honour of being the 2014-2015 Ambassador of the Wilmot Agricultural Society. Being ambassador was a wonderful experience that taught me about the importance of community involvement, sustaining agriculture, and
networking within your community. Thank you to everyone in the Wilmot Agricultural Society, the Ambassador Committee, my sponsor the New Hamburg Lioness Club, and all the great people who I have met along the way. I am grateful for your mentorship, support and friendship.
My experience as ambassador allowed me to grow as an individual. I attended monthly board meetings, parades, and the Annual General Meeting with the Wilmot Agricultural Society. I travelled to Arthur where I met all the ambassadors from District 7, and stayed at The Royal York Hotel in Toronto for the OAAS Convention. All these are experiences
I will cherish forever. I am looking forward to competing at the CNE, and helping with the upcoming Ambassador program! It’s been a pleasure being ambassador since agriculture has always been a big part of my life. I was born and raised on a farm in New Hamburg and ever since I can remember I have come to the Fall Fair each year. I love all the memories I have from the derbies, midway, and of course the food! I plan on staying connected with the Wilmot Agricultural Society, and believe that it is important that younger members
in the community start becoming involved. This will allow the Fall Fair to stay within our community, and allow future generations to experience agriculture as we did! This has been an unforgettable experience that I will remember for the rest of my life.
See you at the fair!
