Last chance to nominate a fair champion
Every fair has that special person who is nearly indispensable. It could be the board member who is on every committee and never misses a meeting; it could be the lady who enhances each event with her talents at decorating or the man who canvasses the local businesses each year to generate the necessary funds. Why not nominate that special person for national recognition as a Canadian Fair Champion? Up to 3 champions will be selected to receive an all-expense paid trip to the CAFÉ Convention in Niagara Falls. Visit the CAFÉ Website for an application form, and be sure to get it in by Sept. 30!

Hauser amused kids for decades

The founder of West Coast Amusements died earlier this month while the midway was touring Vancouver Island.
West Coast Amusements is a Canadian company with offices and winter quarters in Langley. Bingo and Jackie Hauser have lived in Langley for more than 50 years.
West Coast Amusements was founded in 1962 by Bingo, who has been in show business since the mid-1940s. Raised and educated in Brandon, Man., Bingo ran away to join the circus and started travelling with carnivals. Bingo started his own animal show, the inspiration for the lion in the WCA logo.
