  • It's my pleasure to invite each and every farm family in Eastern Ontario, West Quebec and beyond to enjoy the 90th anniversary celebration of the Ottawa Valley Farm Show March 14-16.

    I am proud to have served for two terms as president of the Ottawa Valley Seed Growers Association which orga- nizes the farm show. It is a labour of love for our volunteer directors and committee members, most of them farmers, who are pleased to bring the show together for the entire agricultural sector.

    To our exhibitors, thank you for supporting the show through your participation every year. Without your support, there would be no Ottawa Valley Farm Show. And to those 75 companies on our waiting list... all we can do is try to squeeze a few more of you in every year.

    I have been farming since I was a young sprout more than 80 years ago and I have been involved in this orga- nization for many, many years. Although held in Ottawa near the airport at the EY Centre because it is the only facility around large enough, the farm show is a showcase rural event, the first big agricultural gathering of the year in Eastern Ontario.

    I like to think that, over 90 years, the show has been a unifying factor for the agricultural and rural community, a place where farmers, farm leaders, and suppliers come together to exchange ideas and prepare for a new growing season in a region that rivals any in North America.

    Here's hoping you enjoy all of our regular features, the commercial exhibits, antiques, 4-H and quilt displays, the annual auction sale, and the Seed Growers Awards, along with special 90th activities such as live entertainment and local food, not to mention the President's Anniversary Cookie Contest -- which I intend to win.

    Happy 90th Ottawa Valley Farm Show!
