It was another healthy turn out for the Agriculture Appreciation Banquet on Jan. 13 at the Prince of Wales Cultural and Recreation Centre.
Mayor Sharon Schauenberg credited local and area agricultural producers for the tremendous work they do.
“It is a job with high demands and sacrifices, early mornings and late nights, rising costs and unpredictable weather; hope and faith,” she said. “It is not a job for the faint hearted, and so we gather here tonight to thank you for those long hours, those sacrifices and your continued hard work.”
Kathy Kennedy, Assiniboia Chamber of Commerce Co-Chair, echoed those sentiments of the agriculture industry, calling farmers “the backbone of the community.”
