2016- 2017 DRESDEN EX AMBASSADOR

Rachael Cameron, Dresden Exhibition Ambassador

Hello, my name is Rachael Cameron and it has been an honour to represent the community of Dresden and the Dresden Agricultural Society as the 2016/17 Ambassador this past year. I graduated from LKCS in June of 2016 and am currently enrolled in the Smith School of Business at Queen’s University. I had the opportunity to represent Dresden at a variety of events throughout the year and have gained valuable experience and countless memories. My year began with spending the weekend at the Dresden Exhibition and attending numerous activites and events including 4-H shows, the Baby Show and the Talent Show. I attended the Ontario Agricultural Association Society’s (OAAS) annual convention where I frequented workshops and listened to speakers focusing on topics such as the sustainability and importance of agriculture and how to educate the public about where their food comes from. I also had the opportunity to attend local events including the incredible RCMP’s Musical Ride, the Demolition Derby, the Tractor Pull at the Dresden Raceway as well as parades at the Brigden Fair and Thamesville Threshing Festival. I have met so many incredible people both inside and outside of our community this past year. My experience as an ambassador is invaluable and I am looking forward to representing our community this August at the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) in Toronto. It has been such an honour representing Dresden and I will carry this experience with me for the rest of my life. This competition is an integral part of the exhibition and I hope that I have been a positive role model for future Dresden Ambassadors. I would like to thank the Dresden Agricultural Society and Shirley McKerrall for everything they have done for me and for making this competition happen. This experience has been truly amazing and I am so proud to be representing our community.
