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
Originally hosted in Heritage Co-op
Showcasing parking lot, last year due to weather con-
cerns, the BBQ was moved to the Minnedo-

the event at the Minnedosa Community

Conference Centre and organizers hope to

continue the event at this location in the
years ahead.
