CHESTERVILLE —The Chesterville & District Agricultural Society is inviting the community to submit feedback on the recent 85th annual Chesterville Fair.
Organizers are looking to determine what worked, and what did not, at the Aug. 26-28 fair. Final numbers are not yet known, but attendance at the 2016 fair “was down slightly compared to last year,” according to Society President Tina Asselin, who attributed the dip “partially to the extreme heat.”
Asselin asks that feedback, if negative, be constructive and respectful. “I’m sure we didn’t please everyone, despite our efforts, but if someone says, for example,’it was a terrible fair,’ we would like them to expand a bit and tell us why,” says Asselin.
The Society has already had some discussions with fairgoers, and in preparation for next year’s edition “we thought it would be helpful to us … to actively seek input from the community,” says the president in a Society press release. “After all, it’s their fair.”
Feedback may be sent to either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. “If we receive feedback on something out of our control (midway rides or demolition derby rules, for example), we will collect and relay that feedback to the appropriate people,” she says.
