The Farmer's Appreciation Luncheon hosted by Classic Hits Radio & Mix 104 took place at the Kindersley Elk's Hall yesterday afternoon, and drew a superb crowd. Over 200 visitors arrived to enjoy delicious food and enter to win some prizes. With Rosetown's Farmer's Appreciation Breakfast attracting over 100 people, it was a successful two days hosting over 300 guests.
Active farmers had the opportunity to enter for a variety of prizes such as an iceless cooler, Shop-Vac, and a patio bench. Although, the main prize the farmers were entering their names for is a Meridian Grain Max, 3000 AirMax Aeration Bin valued at $24,000. Non-farmers were able to enter for a one night hotel stay in Saskatoon.
Greg Becker was one of the local farmers who attended the BBQ lunch, and expressed his excitement in entering for the grand prize. "Winning the bin would be the cat's meow," said Becker. "It would be perfect!"
A savory BBQ lunch was served by members of the Kindersley Crude Hitters roller derby team. "The food was excellent, and I'd recomment anyone to come have one!" said Becker. "The price was right, and it was very good." All the money raised from the BBQ will go towards the Kindersley Roller Derby Association. The members of the Crude Hitters were overjoyed with all the guests who arrived to support the team at the event.
The draw for the prizes is slated for Monday morning.
