The annual Mennonite Fall Fair took place on Saturday at the Westwood Mennonite Brethren Church. This is the third year the event has taken place at the church but the church has hosted the annual fair for nearly forty years. There were many home baked goodies for sale, as well as, gala apples from Kelowna. Some of the most popular items of the day were the perogies from Abbotsford and the Mennonite sausage from Manitoba. As usual patrons of the fair were able to purchase a lunch comprising of grilled sausage on a bun, a bowl of hearty borscht, a piece of pie, and a drink. All money raised from today's fair go to the Mennonite Central Committee with funds from this year going to Shanti Nepal, a project which has been working to improve the poor nutritional status of women and children under the age of 5 in the Dhading district of Nepal.
