Things are really moving around the Lyme Front this month!
I've just received an outdoor banner with my friend Fi's design at the top. She's in South Africa, so we have international designers helping with this! I had ordered it some weeks ago but it took a while to be delivered and I was getting antsy .... Hopefully it can help with our displays, depending on where we are.
It will be set up today as part of our booth at the Brampton Fall Fair which is on until Sunday. If you want to join us, you can buy passes for only $20 per person, which will give you access all day, any day, until Sunday. You can come and go as you like with that.
Otherwise, a one-day admission is $10 per adult, $8 per student or senior, and children under 12 are $2 each.
There are all sorts of events going on during the fair. The Ontario Falcon Centre is there again with their birds of Prey, for instance. If you want to see some pictures from last year, here they are CLICK
There are car races, horse shows, a Gymkhana, Welsh ponies, vintage car displays, a baby show on Sunday, rabbits, pigeons and horses, and a lot of baby chicks which children usually love to watch. Below is a PDF schedule of events for the fair, if you want to see the variety of items being presented. And don't forget to stop by the halls! Play a bit of fun on the Penny Sale, and in the Homecraft building, see the display of Antiques, baking, canning, arts and crafts, children's handwork, needlework, photography, 4-H displays --- maybe next year you or your children would like to enter something!
Brampton Fair Schedule
Come on out and visit a little! Stop by the Midway or let the kids play at the booths to win a stuffed toy while you browse the booths.
At our Lyme tent, we have volunteers who will be chatting and answering questions, handing out brochures and sharing information. I'm so grateful to people who are coming to help with that, reaching out to the community. Thank you, my friends.
Dr. Ernie Murakami has arrived in Ontario and will do his first presentation at Fort Erie tonight. He will answer questions about Lyme Disease, the treatment and care and is hoping to help people find answers.
He will be in Brampton on Tuesday evening. The list of lectures and venues up to Kingston and back down to Toronto can be found HERE. There is a possibility that a lecture might be added for Ottawa, if a venue can be found.
All very exciting. Joe is back from the Outdoor Farm Show. See the previous two entries on this blog about that event. He says it went incredibly well and we are already booked again for next year! We'll talk about helpers as soon as the excitement of September has died down a bit.
We CAN make a difference and we CAN help people get the information they need. The petition forms are steadily arriving and adding to the groundswell.
