Richardson Pioneer donates $25k to Wetaskiwin Ag Society

Funds will go towards building project says ag society

The Wetaskiwin Ag Society’s building project was the beneficiary of serious local business generosity to the tune of $25,000.

Richardson Pioneer made the $25,000 donation Oct. 2 to ag society representatives at their grounds.

Wetaskiwin Ag Society President Ray Boeve said the organization was very happy and appreciative to receive the donation, and he said there’s a lot of community spirit and support in the Wetaskiwin area.

Richardson Pioneer location manager Fred Redhead said the company was proud to support an organization like the Wetaskiwin Ag Society.

Redhead noted Richardson Pioneer was proud to be part of supporting the Wetaskiwin Ag Society and to be able to participate in a great effort like the building project.

Boeve said the building project is close to finish, and the society can actually start booking the hall for events. He said the ag society has heard lots of positive feedback that there will be a medium-sized venue available in a great, convenient location for events.

He said funds from Richardson Pioneer would be used to finish the interior and possibly for kitchen work.
