ECHO BAY - Planning is well under way for this year’s Laird Fair and the North Shore Agricultural Society is looking for your assistance with making this year a success!
We are inviting anyone willing to volunteer their time on the Laird Fair Board and/or on the weekend of the Fair (August 14-16, 2015), as well as anyone who has ideas, to please contact LairdFair@gmail.com and provide us your valuable information and feedback.
To kick off 2015, the North Shore Agricultural Society is sponsoring their annual Ham & Bean Dinner which is scheduled for Saturday February 28, 2015 at the Bar River Hall in Echo Bay.
This event has become a community tradition, with funds raised from this dinner being put towards costs associated with putting on the Laird Fair each year.
The Ham & Bean Dinner will be held from 4:30 p.m. - 7 p.m. and will feature many yearly favorites including baked ham, baked beans, scalloped potatoes and homemade dessert.
Tickets will be available at the door at a cost of $12 and children under the age of 10 get in for free if accompanied by an adult.
In addition to providing a delicious home cooked meal, local entertainment will be performing at the dinner to entertain attendees.
Check us out on Facebook for updates in the coming weeks.
