I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year in the communities of Gilbert Plains, Grandview & beyond. Our A.G.M. was held on Jan. 16th & I am pleased to announce that I have been elected to serve as President for another year. I look forward to working with our Chairpeople, Directors, Volunteers and Sponsors to bring you an exciting and highly entertaining 2013 Fair & Rodeo.
2012 proved to be a very challenging year for the Ag. Society before, during and after the event. However, the Directors and Volunteers of The Ag. Society persevered and managed to put their talents together and provide yet another awesome 3 day event to showcase the communities of Gilbert Plains & Grandview.
We are very excited to be partnering with Manitoba 4H this year to showcase their organization as 4H celebrates 100 years! If you have any ideas or suggestions on including 4-H in our 115th Annual Fair & Rodeo please forward them to us.
As in all organizations people come and people go. The Ag. Society is currently in need of a Parade Marshall, Light Horse Chair(s) & Rodeo Chair(s). If you are interested or know of someone who would be interested in filling these positions please contact us.
In closing, there are exciting times to come, and just to clear things up, we’re not always about work. We do have alot of fun doing this, so if you have some spare time and want to join an enthusiastic and dynamic group of people helping to showcase and better their community, WE are what you’ve been looking for. We meet every third Wednesday of the month so join us to celebrate your community spirit and pride. All the best in 2013 and we’ll see you at the 115th Annual Fair & Rodeo!
