Prairie Post (West Edition) - - Alberta - BY HEATHER CAMERON

The 2nd An­nual Har­vest Gala will be held on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 12, at Her­itage Acres Farm Mu­seum near Pincher Creek.

The Gala kicks off at 5:30 p.m. and guests will have the op­por­tu­nity to en­joy the Home­style Turkey Sup­per, the mu­sic by Phil Leth­bridge and guests, the danc­ing, and the won­der­ful at­mos­phere as pro­vided by the his­toric barn in the south­west cor­ner of the prov­ince.

“This year we are cel­e­brat­ing the out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tions that Bob We­strop has pro­vided to our com­mu­nity over many years,” said Mark Bar­ber MBA, the Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of Her­itage Acres Farm Mu­seum.

Bar­ber says that Bob We­strop is a lo­cal rancher who has al­ways par­tic­i­pated in com­mu­nity events when re­quested and is also an auc­tion­eer that has served as an em­cee for mul­ti­ple events over the years.

The Gala it­self, Bar­ber says, was founded last year by for­mer Pres­i­dent, Ken Lewis, as a way to raise funds for the busi­ness and also rec­og­nize the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s many vol­un­teers. Pro­ceeds from the event will go to as­sist Her­itage Acres with op­er­at­ing and project ex­penses.

“The fundrais­ing as­pect of this now an­nual event is very im­por­tant,” Bar­ber said. “How­ever, it is also very im­por­tant to pro­vide our com­mu­nity with a won­der­ful cel­e­bra­tion of the con­cluded har­vest.”

Bar­ber says that Her­itage Acres vol­un­teers and other com­mu­nity mem­bers en­joyed a won­der­ful evening and filled the barn last year.

Tick­ets for the event are $30 for ages 16 and over; $20 for ages 7-16; and free for ages 6 and un­der with lim­ited sup­per tick­ets avail­able. Tick­ets are avail­able at Pincher Creek Of­fice Sup­ply, Seeds Flower Shop, and at The Her­itage Acres Farm Mu­seum.

“Tick­ets are go­ing fast. If this sounds like an evening that you would en­joy, you will want to re­serve your tick­ets soon,” Bar­ber said.
