Our last Farmers Market for the 2012 season was held on Saturday, September 29, 2012. We had a wonderful day weather wise. There were about 15 tables for the vendors, who have come each week, with garden produce, baking, crafts, jewelry and garage sale items.
Our Train Platform is a wonderful welcome for the Tour Train as well as our local folks who came to “meet and greet” the Tour Train each week.
This week we had the Spinning Wheels join us from the Weyburn area with some nice old time music, which was a very nice touch for our party.
We had about 10 cars and trucks join us for the Show and Shine display. A big thank you to Bryon Ledingham for organizing this.
We featured a Burger lunch as a final fund raiser for the Platform Dock and the response was very good. We served about 100 burgers. Thanks to all who helped with this.
We had about 130 people come out for our final Farmers Market, including the train folks, our vendors, car display and local residents.
The Pangman and District Economic Development Board would like to thank everyone who have been involved with making this years Farmers Market a big success. We would also like to thank John Strutt of Strutt Corvettes for donating 2 Limited Edition Cars to raffle with all proceeds going towards the Platform fund. The draw was done on Saturday and the winners were: Jaycee Rowland and Navey Tondevold.
The 50/50 draws over the summer have been beneficial to the Pangman and District Economic Development Board and the many winners were; Doreen Rainey, Kay Gurskey, Patti Klippenstein, Albert Hansen (2), Jack Rainey, Val Heustis, Dan Cordick, Eileen Tunall and more.
