name is Kelsey Berkelmans; I was elected the
2010-2011 Ambassador for the Aylmer Fair. I
thoroughly enjoyed my time as the Aylmer Fair
Ambassador. I was able to help out with some
events organized by the Aylmer Fair Board such
as the Haunted House, the Santa Clause Parade,
Strawberry Fest and a few other events.
I have gained many new skills from taking on the
task of being the Fair Ambassador. My public
speaking skills have improved immensely. I
consider myself very privileged to work with the
amazing people at the fair board this year. I
would especially like to thank Scott Lewis for
putting up with my less than forgiving school
schedule as I attended university for the first
time this year. I would like to take this
opportunity to say a huge thank you to Elaine
Earhart for keeping me informed on up-coming
events and for helping me through this year
showing me exactly what to do. Thank you to the
entire fair board staff for including me in your
“Fair Board Family”. Thank you to all those who
supported me through-out this year your
encouragement meant a lot.
I feel extremely privileged to have had this
opportunity. I encourage more people to try to
become the fair ambassador; it’s a great
experience and opportunity.
