Women’s conference in Ponoka is welcomed

I read in the paper this week that the Ag Society is planning to start a Women’s Conference in Ponoka.

Dear Editor,

I read in the paper this week that the Ag Society is planning to start a Women’s Conference in Ponoka.

I’m very happy to hear that. Ponoka (and Rimbey) used to both have a conference years ago and it was so nice to be able to pick and choose and go to one if you couldn’t make the other fit your schedule or treat yourself to two “me” days.

Rimbey has been fortunate enough to continue their Women’s Conference for 28 years. February 5, 2015 will be our 29th and it draws women from the entire surrounding area; Lacombe, Ponoka, Bentley, Red Deer, Sylvan Lake, Winfield, Buck Lake, Bluffton, Alder Flats and Breton. Camrose also has a very nice conference which some of our committee has attended.

I believe these conferences are so very important for women to give themselves an opportunity to get together, learn new things, broaden their mindset or just simply treat themselves to a “fun” day away from their usual busy lives.

Whatever your plans are for a Ponoka Conference, the best of luck to you.

I am looking forward to a new conference to attend.
