2014 Expo and Trade Fair

Pipestone Flyer

Just a few of the hundreds of people checking out the 78 booths at the LRC last weekend.

    The annual Business EXPO & Trade Fair sponsored by the Leduc Regional Chamber of Commerce was held at the Leduc Recreation Center (LRC) on April 26th & 27th. The first 100 people each day received a Cora Breakfast and Lunch gift bags. The Boys & Girls Club of Leduc held a Pancake Breakfast Saturday morning with the assistance of The Black Gold Citizens on Patrol. 

    Admission was free and individuals could put their name in a draw for three $500.00 Canadian Tire Gift Cards. 

    Live entertainment was provided both days as over 78 different business and organization had booths to exhibit their products or to provide information.  Leduc’s radio station 93.1 The One was broadcasting live both days from the Expo site.  Performers for the weekend were Daylin Jorgenson, Yasmeen Najmeddine, Megan Keirstead, and Garret Wood along with Dan the Balloon Man and the Rhythmic Gymnastics Club.

    Individuals in attendance Saturday morning had an excellent opportunity to see and talk to the various political leaders of the community. Both Mayor Greg Krischke and Mayor John Whaley, along with MLA George Rogers and MP James Rajotte were present as well as many city and county councilors. County residents had the opportunity to approach Mayor Whaley with questions about Edmonton’s proposed annexation and wish him well in his bid for the MP seat of the new federal riding.

    MLA George Rogers established a booth, for both days, where residents could pick up various pamphlets and brochures about government services or talk to their MLA about concerns important to them.

    Businesses represented at the Expo ranged from local to national firms. The City of Leduc took the opportunity to check the pulse of citizens with survey sheets that allowed citizens to express things they liked along with items they would like to see improved.
