VANSCOY & DISTRICT AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY

The Vanscoy & District Agricultural Society was thrilled to receive creative drawings from many talented, grade 4-6 students, in the RM of Vanscoy for our poster contest. Congratulations to Everett Brown for placing first and winning $15. Second place goes to Kaiya Mitchell for $10 and third place to Samuel Kielo for $5. Your art was fantastic and we thank you and the other exhibitors as well. Their work will appear on our Facebook page, the June addition of the RM Review and our 2021 Fair Catalogue. Thank you to DES for encouraging this community contest!

On a sad note, The Vanscoy & District Agricultural Society is sad to announce that our 2020 Fair at Fall Fest will be cancelled this year. With the slow comeback towards ‘normal’, we are uncertain that our group could safely support large crowds during the event. Thank you for your understanding. Your health and safety are important to us. We’d like to thank the Delisle & District Recreation Association, especially Billie Parker and Lori Neault, for partnering with us on planning this event. They always provide so much help and we can’t wait to work with them again next year to put on a Fair and Fall Fest even better than before in 2021.
