Calnash Ag Event Centre - Cattle Pavilion
Donation of $50,000 was made to the Calnash Ag Event Centre to honour our commitment to the construction of the Cattle Pavilion. The Centre is operated by the Ponoka Ag Event Centre Society (PAECS) of which the Ponoka Ag Society and the Ponoka Stampede are deemed Essential Members. Other members are the Town of Ponoka, Ponoka County and a member at large.
The Pavillion was completed by mid-August 2019.
It is a much appreciated and well used addition!
