It's been a busy month for the Whitecourt District Agricultural Society.

The 10th Annual Westward Christmas Market kicked off on November 3rd and had over 70 tables filled with fantastic items from local vendors. By the time it had ended on November 4th, the market had raised $2273.80 for the food bank, as well as, several boxes of food. The town of Whitecourt and Woodlands County residents have been amazing each year with their generosity to the Food Bank each year and we would like to thank you all for your contributions in helping out the hungry in our own community.

November 10th saw a Family Fun Game night happen at the hall. Several families took advantage of the opportunity to try out new games, to teach others and to meet other families. We saw families from as far away as, Niton Junction, Peers and Greencourt, as well as, families from Whitecourt and Woodlands County. This was a free event for the community and was received well from those who attended.

On Monday, November 19th we will be holding our annual general meeting at 7 PM and this is not only a great opportunity to be an Agricultural Member for a membership fee of only $5 but a voice in our society. We want to hear your opinions. Tell us what we are doing right and what needs improvement. Perhaps you have an idea and would like to share it or you would like to join our team and step up to be on a committee. Regardless, we hope to see you at the Westward Community Centre on November 19th at 7 PM!
