VIDEO: Woodland Country Fair brings local community together

LONG SAULT, Ont. – Woodland Villa’s annual Country Fair saw about 300 people pass through on Aug. 22, a testament to the value the event brings to the small community each year, says Lisa Doran, the home’s life enrichment co-ordinator and one of the fair’s organizers.

The event, which celebrated its 13th year, attracted several local vendors who sold their wares at booths. There was musical entertainment, horse and pony rides, classic cars on display, and bouncy castles for young children. The event also featured a silent auction, raffles and a 50-50 draw. The Country Fair ran from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

OMNI Health Care’s 18 long-term care homes are working to create stronger community engagement in 2018. The Country Fair is an example of how Woodland Villa has been engaging people living in Long Sault and in the surrounding area for many years, Lisa says.
