Waterski and Wakeboard Alberta

As it did in 2010, Leduc County is once again providing a donation to the Waterski and Wakeboard Alberta 2016 Canadian Open.

Council approved a $500 donation at its May 24 meeting; the sponsorship request was for $5,000.

“We just felt $500 was more appropriate,” said Dean Ohnysty, director of parks and recreation.

According to Waterski and Wakeboard Alberta executive director Melanie Oliver, the international event, held at Shalom Park, is just one of two to be held in Leduc County this year.

Approximately 60 athletes representing 10 countries will be in attendance.

Beaumont Ag Society Rural Roots Fair

Leduc County council also donated $500 to the Beaumont Ag Society 2016 Rural Roots Fair. This is the inauguration of the event and Ohnysty says it will be reviewed and brought back to council again next year to determine if it should become a permanent supporter of the event.

The fair will work to provide education on agricultural lifestyles to those who attend and Coun. Audrey Kelto questioned if council was providing funding to support an event that would only talk about the pleasant information or if it would be a well-rounded experience educating on the realities of agriculture in the region as well.
