This past week­end, Fe­bru­ary 3 – 5, the an­nual con­fer­ence of the Al­berta As­so­ci­a­tion of Agri­cul­tural So­ci­eties was held in Ed­mon­ton. Lyle Rowe, pres­i­dent of the Ver­dant Valley Ag So­ci­ety, was our so­ci­ety del­e­gate and at­tended the con­fer­ence with Diana Rowe and El­son and Pat McDougald. The Ver­dant Valley Ag So­ci­ety won two first place spe­cial event mar­ket­ing awards at the Pro­vin­cial Con­fer­ence. The dis­play showed pictures and in­for­ma­tion of the Chore Horse event that was sponsored last sum­mer at the Com­mu­nity Cen­ter. Well done.

Don’t for­get the Fam­ily Fun Day on Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 12, start­ing at 1:00 pm. We will have lots of snow now for our horse drawn sleigh rides and the weather is go­ing to mod­er­ate they say. We will have a big bon­fire, wiener roast, hot choco­late and fun for ev­ery­one. Ev­ery­one is welcome to come and there is no charge. The event is sponsored by the Ver­dant Valley Ag So­ci­ety.

Happy birth­day this week to Tan­ner Poland on Fe­bru­ary 11, Keith Wil­son on Fe­bru­ary 12 and Brody Hatt on Fe­bru­ary 15.
