Through a competitive process, the two construction projects on YAA’s agricultural fairground property were awarded to Eldorado Logbuilders. By the end of the summer, arena bleachers as well a community use building will be ready for use. In addition, the board and other volunteers, as well as sponsors, are preparing the two parking lots and the roadway in and out of the fairgrounds. We are developing highway signage and directional signs on the property too. The board looks forward to hosting an open house and future agricultural events at the fairgrounds as soon as possible!

In April, the board approved a new Terms of Reference document for the equipment committee, which will oversee and manage the 2020 rental program. Thank you to Don Coates, Michel Duteau, Wayne Grove, Bernard Luken, Hank Sippel and Darrin Sinclair for their support of this program. Through a competitive process, the Equipment Custodian Contract was awarded to Gerry and Ann-Marie Stockley. Click here to see the new online bookings system. The development of new procedures are underway and the committee welcomes feed-back for the purpose of streamlining the efficiency of the program.
