Returning and new visitors from the region enjoyed attending including those from Vermilion, Kitscoty, and Lloydminster. “I’m thankful for my volunteers. I work with an awesome Agricultural Society with members and executives who look after everyone and without volunteers this just wouldn’t be possible. I would also like to thank the participants and the people that take the time to come and support our events; it is greatly appreciated,” said Ron Harasiuk, Clandonald Agricultural Society President.
