On Friday July 16, the Ag Society is organizing the grand reopening of the Agri-dôme since the end of its renovations.

Farm Credit Canada’s AgriSpirit Fun Response 2020 – Ripley Fall Fair Enhancement project was completed last month. The project provided the Ag Society with a new concrete floor in its building. The 2021 roof renovation project was also completed this year. The roof renovation project was funded by sales from the Elmira Chicken fundraiser and the 2020 Fall Fair online auction. Kempton Construction and Gary Moulton Construction installed the flooring. The Ag Society also thanks Epcor, Hurontel, the NWMO and BM Ross for their community support of the project.

Beavertails and Wild Willies Food Truck will be present at the event, and 10% of proceeds from Wild Willies will be donated to the Agricultural Society. All Covid health rules must be respected during the event.

The theme of this month’s photo contest is “Farmer in a field”. The person entering must take the photo, and only one photo per person is allowed each month. Submit your entries to [email protected]
