Caitlin Livingston of Wellesley was crowned Wellesley’s Fall Fair Ambassador for 2020-2021 on Monday the 31st of August by last year’s ambassador, Leah Sebben of Linwood.
Caitlin and Mya Legge were the two runners up in last year’s Fall Fair. Because this year’s Fair was cancelled due to the coronavirus, committee members Joanne Stewart, Wendy Richardson, Mary Lichty-Neeb and Miranda Schultz asked them both to consider donning the tiara for this year. Mya is studying at university in Toronto, so Caitlin agreed to step up to the plate.
Caitlin is taking a gap year after finishing grade 12, in advance of studying French and Fine Arts at the University of Waterloo, with the aim of becoming a high school teacher. She will be working at the Scran & Dram, a Scottish-style public house in New Hamburg, when she isn’t performing her ambassador duties on behalf of the Wellesley community.
The ambassador program is an incredible experience for young men and women in Wellesley Township to get involved in their community and learn new leadership skills. Caitlin’s duties will include visiting local schools (coronavirus permitting), representing Wellesley at the Ontario Association of Agricultural Societies and of course, crowning next year’s new ambassador.
Thank you Leah for your service, and congratulations to Caitlin, who I am sure will do a great job representing her community.
