It was a great day and we want to send a big thank you out to all the people who came out that day and especially to our wonderful buyers!
Other things we have been doing was grounds clean up and transplanting spruce trees at Angus Ridge Hall. That was a lot of fun and was done quickly with many hard working hands.
Next up is the rodeo in Wetaskiwin that we will be volunteering for. It should be an action packed weekend. Then we have our wind up on June 18 where we will get our cheques. Boy, we sure can’t wait for that day.
