Ag Day in Rimbey brought large crowds

Fun was had by all at Rimbey’s Ag Day

Evergreen Co-op laid out the red carpet for its friends and neighbours last Wednesday, inviting everyone to a free roast beef lunch and offering great displays of the latest products and services offered.

Operations manager of Evergreen Co-op, Rick Moon said he was pleased with the turnout at the Ag Days event held at the Agrim Building in Rimbey from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 13.

“It was really good, up from last year,” he said. “It was nice that Agrim’s building is closer to being finished and that we could hold the event there.”

Moon said 120 people were served at the free lunch.

Division manager of Evergreen Co-op, Jeff Leland said about 30 people showed up in Rocky Mountain House for the Ag Days celebration.

“It was not as good as Rimbey, but it was a good event,” he said.

Moon said farmers need to be given credit for all they do.

“If you’ve enjoyed a glass of milk, if you’ve bought a loaf of bread, if you wear clothes, you should hug a farmer and thank them. We need to thank our local farmers for all they do for our community and for the world.”
