Dear Fairgoers, Sponsors, Vendors, Suppliers, Exhibitors & Volunteers,
We, the Cumberland Township Agricultural Society (CTAS) board of directors, held another conference call to discuss the future of this year’s Navan Fair amid the Covid – 19 pandemic.It is with heavy hearts that we announce the cancellation of the 2020 Navan Fair. Sadly, we join a ever-growing list of summer events that won’t be taking place this year. It became increasingly clear over the last couple of weeks that a return to “normal” is going to be a slow process.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support over the past 74 years. We are truly grateful to all of you. As the economy starts to re-open, we encourage you to support the local businesses who support us. We have counted on them in the past, they are now counting on us!
We are now in our seventh week of living in a restricted world. These continue to be extraordinary and historic times. We look forward to August 2021 when we can all be together again to celebrate our community and agricultural roots at our 75th fair.
Please keep monitoring our website and social media for plans and various projects that we are working on. Let us know if you’d like to get involved by contacting the fair office (firstname.lastname@example.org or 613-835-2766) or reaching out to a director. Together we can make the 2021 Navan Fair the biggest and best that it can be. As always, we look forward to your comments and ideas.
Please continue to follow all of the health precautions to stop the spread of Covid-19. Take care of yourselves and your loved ones.
Luc Bergeron, President CTAS
