|Welcome to the Lone Pine Agricultural Society
Gone are the days of the steam-powered tractors, the threshers, the nine-horse teams ... still remaining are many rural communities originally built by those early homesteaders. And Lone Pine is no exception. Neighbours in the Lone Pine Alberta area get together over coffee, help each other during the fall harvest, with calving, and even get together for social activities at the local community hall. Operated by the Ag Society, annual events held at the Lone Pine Hall include:
We also rent out our hall for weddings, memorial services, meetings, and so on. For information on renting the Lone Pine Hall for your next event, please call Joanne Hannah at 403-335-4190.
The Ag Society also presents a Scholarship to students who have lived in the surrounding community of the Lone Pine Hall.
Since 1985, the Lone Pine Ag Society has honoured a local citizen for dedicated service to the rural community with the JC McCulloch Award. This award is presented at the Society's Annual General Meeting.
Our Hall is located 16 miles east of Didsbury on the banks of the Lone Pine Creek. The Hall has been in continuous operation since it was constructed in 1924.
|Local Fair Champion Honoured Nationally
The Canadian Association of Fairs & Exhibitions (CAFE) has announced the winners of the 2014 Canadian Fair Champions Competition, and one of them is our own Susan Page!
Nominated by the Lone Pine Agricultural Society for many years of volunteer work with the Lone Pine Hall Bench Fair, Susan is one of three Canadians to receive the "Unsung Hero" award. She exemplifies unselfish dedication to community, and has gone beyond and above the "call of duty" for her local fair or exhibition.
Susan joins three other devoted volunteers: Wanda Aultman from Powassan, Ontario, and Leslie Sterling from North Thompson, BC. They each receive an expense paid trip to the CAFE Convention in Vancouver, BC and will be honoured at the Convention, November 19 to 21.
This is a great honour, and was a complete surprise to Susan!
CAFE is a national nonprofit organization which fosters excellence in leadership in the Canadian Fair Industry by providing programs, resources and leadership.
