The BADAS Fairgrounds Mortgage-Burning Party is over!

beaumontag Fairgrounds

BADAS Directors and Members have worked very hard towards securing ownership of the 70 acre Fairgrounds parcel immediately west of the City of Beaumont in Leduc County, Alberta for over a decade. Have a look at the site plan for our 25 year vision for the Fairgrounds – it’s ambitious! With our last official payment on the mortgage for the Fairgounds on August 24, 2011, it has been paid in full. Thanks to everyone in our District who have helped raise funds through the past 11 years. Special thanks also to our dignitaries who brought best wishes to our party on June 12, 2011. They were: George Rogers, MLA; Mayor John Whaley, Leduc County; Mayor Camille Berube, City of Beaumont; Lisa Hardy, Executive Director of the Alberta Association of Agricultural Societies; Jeremy Kornel, Beaumont Blues Festival; Loretta Martin, BADAS Director and Equine Enthusiast Extraordinaire; and, Harry Zuzak, P.Eng., BADAS Director, Chair of the BADAS Development Committee and member of the Gerry Patsula Community Gardens.
