The Rimbey Agrim Centre is not quite finished, but even so, events are being held there with large crowds in attendance.

The Cory Glenn Performance ranch horse round up, held April 24 and 25 was the very first event ever held at the Agrim Centre.

Agriculture Society treasurer Shirley Ingram said the parking lot was full to capacity with the overflow spilling over into the auction mart grounds.

“There was a very good turnout, we had four to five hundred people there. It was awesome.”

Ingram is grateful for the help of Ponoka County who brought in equipment and hauled in gravel to get ready for the horse show and sale.

However, the centre is not quite finished, she said.

“The lobby is not done and we need cement on the second level. We are still looking for donations,” she added. “We need quite a bit of cement.”

She said the horse round up was held at the back of the centre where the riding arena is.

The Great Canadian Performance Horse Sale was held the first weekend in May.

The high school rodeo to be held May long weekend will take place at the Agrim Centre. The Alberta Barrel Racing Association and the Kansas Ridge Gymkhana Club will use the centre beginning in May.

Ingram said the Agrim Centre’s new website will be operational soon and will have a calendar of events.

Raffle tickets for a chance to win from a selection of 10,000 prizes are available from board members of Stationery Stories and Sounds.

The opportunity to advertise with signage or to purchase square footage at the centre is also available.
