Helping Hands

The Barn at Victoria Park, Owen Sound

Come on out and learn more about the different opportunities available to volunteer with the Owen Sound Agricultural Society. Have your questions answered and pick your position for this year's Fall Fair!

These committees/ area of the OSAS need assistance this year.
All volunteers that help us will receive passes to the fair for their contribution.

Homecraft takes care of all of the exhibits within the Julie McArthur Rec Centre. There are sections that range from junior work to senior work, culinary arts to photography and everything in between! There is help required for the planning of these sections, meeting monthly approximately between now and the fair.
