The Pincher Creek and District Agricultural Society received $10,000 from Shell Canada on Friday, April 25. "This is the second year with a $10,000 contribution to the Ag Society for the various functions that they hold each year in the community," said Shell Canada Community Affairs Coordinator Rod Sinclair. "Our goal is to continue this for at least the next three years, annually." Although it has not always been to this level of funding Sinclair explained that, "Shell has supported the Ag Society every year, for 30 years."

"It's greatly appreciated," said President Pincher Creek and District Agricultural Society Janet Watmough

"It makes a huge difference," agreed Pincher Creek Pro Rodeo Committee Co-chair Lynn Lievers. A few of the events hosted by the Ag Society include the Pincher Creek Fair and Rodeo, 4-H events, The Best of the West Weekend,  High School Rodeo, and the Cowboy Show.
