The Humber Valley Agricultural Home and Handicrafts Exhibition (HVAHHE) committee would like to thank all the sponsors, exhibitors, participants, volunteers and attendees for making this year’s fair a great success! The 46th Annual Fair was held in Deer Lake on September 20-21, 2013. With over 30 exhibitors, over 70 animals in the dairy competition and over 3000 attendees, the fair was our largest ever.
Along with the dairy competition, the fair included a bubble gum blowing contest, a scarecrow contest, an agricultural spelling bee, a Lego building contest, a sunflower contest, a petting farm and a vegetable and preserves competition. Several bakers donated a pie for our inaugural pie auction which raised $263.00 for the local food bank. Exhibitors displayed or sold agricultural and/or home handicrafts for the visiting public. A portable sawmill was on display outside the fair and members of the milk and egg producers boards were on hand to promote their respective industries. Over 500 children from the region participated in school tours on Friday.
The HVAHHE is the longest running agricultural fair in the region and brings visitors and exhibitors from near and far. The fair committee in conjunction with The Grand Lake Centre for Economic Development are currently attempting to secure land and establish a permanent fairground in the region.
Book next year’s date in your calendar – September 12-13, 2014. We hope to see you there!

It’s that time of year again and it usually means questions about investments and RRSPs, which makes it a great time to get a second opinion on your financial plan so let’s find some time before the contribution deadline on March 3 to answer your questions and review some of your options. With over 25 years of experience in financial planning, Melvin and Michael Short would like the opportunity to sit down with you to review some of your future financial goals.
What is an RRSP?
An RRSP (Registered Retirement Savings Plan) is one of the best ways for you to save for retirement. The value of your investments grows tax-free, and you get an income tax deduction for your contributions. Another savings option is a Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA). The main advantage of a TFSA is you can save and invest, and the growth in value is free from income tax.
The RRSP deadline will be here and gone before long and we’re available to answer your questions about RRSPs and retirement planning so contact Melvin or Michael Short at (709) 635-7300 or drop into their office which is located at 28 Upper Nicholsville Road in Deer Lake.
We look forward to working with you to help you prepare for the future!
