Youth Activity Fair 2017

The annual Youth Activity Fair (YAF) on June 17th, put on by Ranch Ehrlo Society in partnership with the Prince Albert Optimist Club, was a great success. It gave youth in the Prince Albert area an opportunity to learn about all the recreational opportunities available to them.

vendorOver 16 vendors came out to showcase local opportunities. Not only did they set up booths, several held demonstrations throughout the day including a mock ringette game and an Irish dancing display.

“The fair reaches people from all areas of Prince Albert and allows them to see all the activities available, not just the ones that are offered in a school setting,” said unit manager and event organizer Nicole Connolly.

This event is an important one for Ranch Ehrlo as it helps people in the area to understand that we strive to be part of the communities that we serve.

“We are sometimes only associated with children in need, rather than what we can do for all children in our community,” Connolly said.

Though the fair has traditionally been held in August, it was moved to June this year in conjunction with the annual Prince Albert Street Fair. The move was favorable as a lot of the street fair traffic came into the mall. Over 10,000 people came through the mall that day! Also new this year, instead of handing out small prizes all day long, activity fair goers had the opportunity to win one of two bikes drawn for at the end of the day.

“It was a really great day and a relaxed event,” explained HR and office administer and event co-organizer Shantelle Petersen.

Youth from Alex Guy House also helped with set up and were onsite drawing mall goers to the display and handing out popcorn.

“The youth were a huge help and they did an awesome job,” Shantelle explained.
