Chamber Hosts Annual Ag BBQ

By DARRYL HOLYK

T he Minnedosa Chamber of Commerce
hosted its annual Ag Appreciation BBQ
Wednesday, June 13th. This annual event
began 13 years ago during the BSE crisis as
a way for the local Chamber to raise some
money to show it’s support for the agricul-
ture industry. Since then, funds from the
event are used to support two $1,000 bursa-
ries for students graduating from Minnedo-
sa Collegiate and who plan to enter the ag-
riculture field as a career or are from a farm
family.
Originally hosted in Heritage Co-op
Showcasing parking lot, last year due to weather con-
cerns, the BBQ was moved to the Minnedo-

Different sa Arena. This year, it was decided to host
the event at the Minnedosa Community

Cultures
Conference Centre and organizers hope to

continue the event at this location in the
years ahead.
As of presstime Wednesday, prelimi-
nary numbers show that this year’s BBQ
raised $2,200.
