The Rimbey Sleigh, Wagon and Saddle Club is gearing up for its 24th annual cutter parade and silent auction.

The cutter parade is to take place on Sat., Feb. 6 at the Rimbey Agricultural Society grounds and is scheduled to begin at 1p.m.

The event is open to everyone and there is no admission cost. All participants are provided with free food.

“It’s old-time horse fun for everyone that reminds us of our proud history of working horses,” said club president Denise McFarlene. “It helps keep the tradition of teamsters alive.”

Along with the cutter parade is a silent auction, which is the club’s major fundraiser for the year. Donations for the silent auction and cash donations to go towards food, supplies and facility fees would also be greatly appreciated.

Anyone who wishes to make a donation may contact Denise McFarlane at 403-704-4236 or Keith Kendrew at 403-843-3293.

Last year there were 17 entries in the cutter parade. Despite temperatures hovering well below zero, participants seemed to enjoyed the event.

At 87-years-old, Jack Gurnett from Bluffton was the oldest driver, Maria Selder, also from Bluffton was the youngest driver and Shannon Schneider from Stony Plain came the furthest for the parade.
