Foster Ag Services supports the community in a variety of ways. Along with being an executive on KAP (Keystone Agriculture Producers) for the past 10 years, Foster Ag Services assists with the following: *donation of custom application for the Canadian Food Grains Bank for past 15 years *donation of custom application to the Arborg & Riverton Curling Clubs for the past 10 years which generates approximately $2,000 in revenue for the Clubs each yr Foster Ag Services has partnered with Reechka Urkrainian Dance Club in a unique corn fundraiser. The kids in the club (with parental help) pick, bag, promote, and sell the corn. They learn how corn is grown and the value of agriculture in our community. This has raised approximately $17,000 in the past 2 years. Foster Ag Services is vital to the success of the Curling Club, they are board members, organize leagues, coach, and instrumental over the years in numerous renovations, construction projects, and installation of artificial ice.
The community would benefit in numerous ways, as there are always projects that require funding and raising funds for projects is always a challenge in smaller agricultural communities. Two projects that would benefit immediately are: Arena Dressing Rooms: the Recreation Centre is building 2 new dressing rooms that will be used for skating and hockey during the winter and for the outdoor aquatic centre in the summer Outdoor Classroom: the Early Middle Years School is building an outdoor classroom which will bring a very unique learning experience to students. What a great way to provide a lasting legacy for the community.
