Celebrate agriculture and spring - Spring Thing 2010

Spring is in the air and the earth is waking up! On Friday, Apr. 9 the Grand Forks & Boundary Regional Agricultural Society invites you to join them in their spring celebrations complete with a chicken splat contest!

The society is thriving and leading a variety of projects in the Boundary region such as: the Community Gardens Project, Seed Bank, Senior Boundary Growers, Poultry Project, and Mobile Abattoir Project to name only a few.This celebration is a way to find out what they are doing and learn a bit about agriculture in the Boundary.

Spring Thing 2010 is taking place on Friday, from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. at the Grand Forks High School. This event is designed to profile the projects the society supports throughout the Boundary region. After a short presentation in the school's auditorium all guests are invited into the multi-purpose room for a potpourri of events.

There will be plant sales, food venues, chicken splat games, prize draws and, of course, the opportunity to speak to the person responsible for each project and ask questions to get more information.

"We are hoping to find people interested in getting involved with the society and contribute to our vision of making the Boundary region, once again, an agricultural hub," said Patti Bevilacqua, organizer and society director.

"We want you to be part of Spring Thing 2010 and your attendance at the event will demonstrate your support for the society. We also encourage you to invite all your family and friends - the more the merrier"
