The Annual General Meeting and Banquet for the Lambton Federation of Agriculture was held November 20th at the Wyoming Fair Grounds. A large crowd gathered for a delicious meal and to honor the winners of the LFA scholarships along with the two new inductees to the Lambton Agricultural Hall of Fame.
We would like to welcome three new board members to the LFA, who were elected at the AGM.
Gary Martin from St. Clair Joins the board and brings an accounting background with him as well as farming. Cole Dortmans and George Dickenson were also elected onto the board. George has served on the board in the past and we look forward to having him back.
To end the night off a pie auction was held with the proceeds going to the Lambton County 4H Association. Thank-you to Lee Brien for auctioneering, and to everyone that donated and bought pies. We hope to see everyone out for next year’s AGM!
Congratulations to Debbie Gilliard of Lambton Shores on winning the 50/50 draw!
