On May 20, under semi-sunny skies, but chilly temperatures, the Agland crew (who donated their time and machinery) were out seeding the 70 acres of land the Curling Club had secured. Hard Red Spring Wheat seed donated by Syngenta was planted for the 2021 growing season to continue to raise funds for the Ice Plant replacement.

Shawn and Dean Jacula donated the use of the land for the fundraising and Shawn stated previously that, the Curling Club has been an important facility for his parents and has continued on to their generation.

“Although underutilized during these times, that will change. It is an important hub for our community both physically and mentally,” said Shawn Jacula

Grow the Ice Plant Board Member, Andrew McCrae stated that they are very thankful to both Shawn and Dean for donating the land.

McCrae also went on to say that Webb’s have completed the first-pass spraying with chemical donated by Bayer and FMC and that Nutrien Ag Solutions have donated the fertilizer.

“We are very thankful for all the sponsors who are helping with this year’s growing season, many of last year’s contributors are on-board again this year,” said McCrae.
