Where did summer go? 

We had a wet summer but the farmers are working hard to get their crops harvested. This week's report from the Alberta government shows the result of a wet summer and an early frost.  Click here to see Alberta Crop Report  

The wet summer proved trying for the society's Gymkhana members who were trying hard to get their rides in. Congratulations to our members, Ashlee Underwood for being chosen this year's Queen, Shelby Underwood for winning 1st in high point, Brianna Kerr for placing 3rd in high point and to Melvin Underwood for placing 4th in High point!

The Whitecourt Woodlands Rodeo was a success, as were the addition of the Mudbogs. Well done to the committee members, volunteers and directors that worked so hard to pull off these events!

The RCMP Musical Ride was an exciting event to watch right here on the Whitecourt District Agricultural Society grounds at the end of August. What an honour to be able to house these amazing horses on our grounds. 

We are gearing up for our Westward Christmas market and will be looking for volunteers to help out on November 9th and 10th. If you are interested in helping out, give Sharlene a call at the hall 780-779-4343, on her cell 780-778-0773 or send her an email at wctagsoc@gmail.com. 

With Thanksgiving happening, this weekend, we all have something to be happy for. Here at the Agricultural Society, we are thankful for our members, volunteers and board of directors. Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
