Strong Support At Gilbert Plains/Grandview Ag Society Meeting
About 60 people showed up to the ag society's board meeting last night to show their support for the annual event and the society itself.
There was concern that without more volunteers, board members, and ideas, the fair and rodeo may have to start cancelling some parts of the show. But after last night's meeting, Vice-president Murray Stoughton says it looks like the fair may even be added to.
"There's some really great ideas, (like) the sand and the straw pile, putting money or tokens in it for the kids; not a lot of cost involved in it and it seems to be a good idea to keep the kids entertained."
The prospect of a Homecoming 2016 in Gilbert Plains was discussed last night as well. The majority of people at the meeting said they supported the idea.
