    Chestermere Country Fair Red Ribbon Honey Competition

    Chestermere Country Fair Red Ribbon Honey Competition

    Who doesn’t love honey and what better place to live than Alberta where some of the world’s best honey is produced. On toast, with peanut butter in your sandwich, in your glogg at Christmas or in baklava–it can’t be beaten. This year the Chestermere country Fair Red Ribbon Competition will be sweetening the competition by offering even more categories for the 2012 honey competition. Local beekeepers take note! Liquid light, liquid dark and creamed categories are now available for your entries, a 500 gm jar of each. Bring them to the Curling Rink, September 7th 11am to 6pm. And for those of you not competing but wanting to know more about honey the Calgary and District Beekeepers Association http://www.calgarybeekeepers.com/ are bringing an interactive display with real live bees. See if you can find the Queen! At 10am on Saturday September 8th, after you see who wins the prize for the best honey, check out the Baking Section for the winner of “Best Baked with Honey” . To enter your honey or your best baking pick up a copy of the Chestermere Country Fair Red Ribbon Booklet at the Chestermere Rec Centre or locations in Chestermere, Langdon and Indus. Booklets have been distributed to all school students in the Chestermere area. For more information call Carol 403 272 7170 x 223 accounting@chestermerecrca.com
