Verdant Valley Eye Opener
The Verdant Valley Agriculture Society has donated and erected a concrete bench on the front lawn of the Drumheller Valley Secondary School in honour of a community member and retired teacher, Lynn Hemming, who was Drumheller Citizen of the Year in 2016. The Ag Society has previously placed benches in honour of former Citizen of the Year recipients from our community at the Hospital garden in honour of Belinda Wilson and at the Verdant Valley Community Center in honour of Bev Wilson. Congratulations to all. We are proud of your achievements.
