Looking for people from the community to participate in an inaugural Steering Committee meeting where we would work on a plan to facilitate the development of a new building on the grain elevator site. Please see the below for more information.
Please join us on May 24!
The Spruce Grove and District Agricultural Heritage Society invite you to participate in an inaugural Steering Committee meeting to discuss the proposed development of a new multipurpose facility at the Spruce Grove Grain Elevator Museum site.
We are searching for people in the community with attributes suitable to our mission. These attributes would include experience in one or more of the following:
- Capital Finance Development
- Building/Project Management
- Community Liaison/awareness in various levels of Government
- Fundraising or sponsorship strategies and experience.
The Spruce Grove Ag. Society was incorporated in 1972. Our members, volunteers and sponsors have been the backbone of making the SG Ag Society a success for over forty years now. Many of you may remember the hugely popular “Agra Fair”, later to be replaced by the Corn Roast, and now Farm & Heritage Carnival, and Harvest Fair. The Ag Society is a huge part of the history of Spruce Grove and Region, and we would love to have your input on the proposed new multi-puporse facility to be built right in the heart of Spruce Grove - at the Grain Elevator Museum.
The vision of one day having a multi-purpose building is now our focus. The purpose of the building is to have a facility that could house our current programs and activities. These currently include the SG Farmer’s Market, Spruce Grove Archives, Homesteaders Museum, and Ag Society Community Events.
To date, the Ag Society has purchased additional land to the east of the existing site to accommodate the footprint of the building. The designated building area has been reclaimed and serviced and the parking lot prepared for future paving. RC Strategies has completed a Feasibility Study which has already been presented to both the City of Spruce Grove and Parkland County and preliminary building plans have been designed by Stantec Engineering.
As a steering Committee member your leadership, experience and networking capabilities would be valuable assets in reaching our project goal.
Please join us to discuss the new building project, and bring along your expertise and ideas to an upcoming Steering Committee meeting on Wednesday, May 24th, 2017, at 7pm at the Grain Elevator Workshop - 120 Railway Avenue, Spruce Grove.
Please RSVP to President, Rick Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org or (780) 966 0321.
We very much look forward to meeting you there. Thank you for your interest!
