Hi to all on this list -
I'd just like to put a plug in for Pioneer Acres,
http://www.pioneeracres.ab.ca , and their up coming show
Aug 5,6,7. AFHS will have an exhibit table so people can see what AFHS is
all about but Bill Campbell needs volunteers to man it. 5,300 people
attended over the 3 days last year.
What genealogist isn't interested in pioneers? There are so many things
going on and so much to see in these three days. A list of these things is
at the sight above. The parade will feature transportation from early days
to present - bleacher seating. There is enough to see to fill the day and it
would be nice if there were enough volunteers so they could get a break to
see these things. There is free transportation - wagons and golf carts - for
those who can't do all that walking. You can be dropped off and picked up.
Also from the parking lot to the grounds. The Trade Fair is in two
buildings and there's everything from used books, garage sale stuff,
antiques, to new crafty things. Concessions are there for food and coffee
or you can go into Irricana to the Chinese restaurant or bring your own
picnic lunch. If you're interested in fully restored old trucks, Ron Carey
has his own building there with some of his collection - some of it used to
be at Heritage Park.
I've volunteered but being a member of Pioneer Acres also, have to share my
time. I'd really encourage you to come out. The more the merrier!
