When staging Linden’s 42nd consecutive Fall Fair, Christine Coggins and Cathy Price know the value of hard work, team effort and the importance of a good production.

Seventy-five display tables were packed into the Linden Cultural Centre and the Dr. Elliott School gym and hallways on Sat. Nov. 3.

In a classroom, under the direction of Nikki Sikorsky, was the Ag Society’s annual offerings of photos, decorations, hobby crafts, and canning from 38 exhibitors.

Price, a Dr. Elliott School teacher, recruited students to set up tables and do many other little things needed to welcome the more than 400 visitors who attended.

Chief Cheerleader Christine Coggins said her work for the Nov. 3 event was helped tremendously by many volunteers and the students. She said it is a true community event.

With exhibitors from Linden, Acme, Three Hills, Torrington and as far away as Calgary and Didsbury, Coggins said she was pleased with the turnout and the mix of vendors.

“Not only that,” she said, “I am always overwhelmed by the school’s involvement. It’s great to work with Cathy Price and her students.”
