The first farmers market for 2016 was held Thur., Mar. 3 with 25 tables and feeding 90 people for the noon luncheon. The next market will be April 7. To book a table phone Kelsey at (403)882-2755.
The Ag. Society will be paying for the painting of the interior of the community hall as well as putting wainscoting on the lower hall walls.
It is also hoped that come spring the “famous” lamp post will be removed.

The Ag Society will sponsor two youth from ages 11 – 18 year to attend the ACCA Youth Leadership Camp. For details phone Marilyn at (403)882-2586.
