Thank You Farmers!

It was another great year for the Farmer Appreciation Lunch at Oakville's Morrison Sports Park!  Special thanks to all the producers in the area who could take time out of their exceedingly busy schedule and join us for some delicious food, great friendship and best of all PRIZES! 


On the CFRY Morning Show Friday we had the opportunity to give away the Grain Max 3000 Hopper Bottom Bin from Meridian Manufacturing live on air, and congratulations goes to David Desrochers of Baldur, MB who won in the reverse draw!  We'll be taking the bin to his farm a little later this month.


Thanks once again for joining us for the Farmer Appreciation Lunch, hope to see you next year!
