The Agricultural Society is a non-profit organization that was formed in 1972 to support the agriculture, horticulture, home-making and quality of life in the community.The Ag Society's goal is to ensure that they keep alive the history of the community both for the present and future generations. When the 1958 grain elevator was marked for demolition after the last manager left in 1995, the Ag Society stepped in to preserve it as a working museum. Since then, several thousand visitors have toured the Elevator.
The Ag Society, a group of dedicated volunteer members, has been instrumental in contributing to the community, beginning with the construction of the Agrena and hosting the annual AgraFair. This event grew to become Western Canada’s largest Agricultural Fair.
In 2012, over 3,000 visitors from Canada and around the world visited the Grain Elevator Museum, Archives, and Farmers' Market. The Society also hosts educational programs for schools, known as "Origins of our Community". The Agricultural Society sponsors the Indoor Farmers' Market and the Archives and also sponsors two students to attend the annual ACCA Youth Program.
Several annual summer fundraising events such as Flap Jacks at the Tracks, our signature event, the Agricultural Heritage Festival & Kids Carnival, and the Harvest Festival are also hosted by the Society and are popular among community members and visitors. Events hosted at the site are for the purpose of raising funds to support ongoing maintenance, programming, and promotions for the Agricultural Society.
