Memorial Bench Placed
Bench placed In Memory of Harold Larsen
The Beautification Committee has finally received and installed a new bench, that was placed in memory of Harold Larsen who passed away in October 2010.
He was a very active member of the Whitecourt District Agricultural Society and is well known for his hard work, dedication and his kind heart. A photo of Harold still hangs in the office for the 2008 sod turning ceremony for the rodeo grounds.
Mr. Larsen's bench oversees the playground, facing north. A fitting place where one can watch the children laugh and play during the day and watch the northern lights in the evening.
Beautification Committee News
Directors Mike Trithart and Brian Munday work on fluffing up the playground woodchips.
The Beautification committee got together over the weekend to do a few projects. The playground wood chips were rotor-tilled and fluffed up. Bare spots were filled with more chips. Tires were added underneath the seesaw to absorb the impact better than the hard ground.
The sandbox was also fluffed up by the rotor-tiller.
The beautification committee has also brought in 8 more waste and recycling bins that will be replacing more of the old barrels that were originally used in four locations which will include the backside of the playground, the front of the hall, the outdoor riding arena and by the rodeo grounds.
Flowers have been added to the front of the hall brightening up the hall frontage.
