Agriculture Society WINNER!
Winning Grand Aggregate for
the second year is sure a great
surprise and honor.
Lakeland Country Fair I had told myself I was not
Presents the going to enter too many
th items for this year, but once I
44 Horticulture started gathering things, one
& Handicraft Bench Show item lead to about 60 entries.
Which lead to winning once
more for 2016, and of course
more ribbons and a Grand
Aggregate Plaque to add to
my collection.

A special thank-you goes to all the volunteers who work hard
for months to plan and make this event possible.
A special thanks also to all the great sponsors. Without the
support for the Horticulture and Handicraft Show and Country
Fair, this wonderful event would not take place.
So to all the great talent out there, come out and showcase
your work!
Hope we see much more great entries in 2017.
Best of luck to all,
Fatima Taha
