Verdant Valley Eye Opener
The Verdant Valley Ag Society met on June 27 to finalize plans for the Verdant Valley Draft Horse Competition to be held on Saturday, August 13 at the Verdant Valley Community Centre. There is free admission for the event which starts at 1:00 pm with the Chore Horse Competition. There will be antique auto and machinery displays as well as other exhibits and displays. For the children there will be a bouncy castle and other activities. The day is geared to keeping the past alive for young and old. More details will be coming in the next weeks but keep that day open for an interesting event.
