Rich Valley Agricultural Society
We are a small but thriving community in north central Alberta who are in need of repairs for our arena.
If we were to receive the money we have 3 projects we could put it towards, either into new boards and plexi-glass around our ice area, getting a new artificial ice machine, or a new roof over our hall area. the community of Rich Valley is very active and every Friday night from the beginning of October until the middle of April everyone gathers at the arena for public skating and a visit. We finish the evening off with a homemade scone and a cup of hot chocolate. We have a fair in the summer time, baseball, hockey, social events and much more. Our little fair grounds are located just off of highway 33 so we make a great place to hold weddings, family gatherings and are available for rental to just about any occasion imaginable. We have been in operation since 1974 and our building and equipment is starting to show its age. We would also be able to save on power if we were able to install a more efficient ice making machine and of course we have to keep up with safety standards. This building is used by everyone in the community from 2 years old to 70 years plus. It is a wonderful facility and a great place to socialize.
