Changes for Sask's Ag Hall of Fame

By: Rikkeal Bohmann, Communications Intern, Communications Branch, Ministry of Agriculture

A “king of disease,” a pioneer of direct seeding equipment and an advocate for the hog industry are among this year’s inductees to the Saskatchewan Agricultural Hall of Fame (SAHF).

The 2016 SAHF induction ceremony is opening its doors to the public this year. Anyone interested in attending the event can now buy tickets and take part in celebrating the dedicated individuals being honoured.

“This year’s inductees all display a loyal commitment to agriculture in the province. We are proud to be celebrating their accomplishments at this year’s ceremony and encourage those in the agriculture industry to join us in commemorating them,” said Reed Andrew, President of SAHF.

The first induction ceremony was held in 1972, where 11 individuals were inducted into the Hall. The Hall aims to recognize individuals who have made significant contributions to the welfare and improvement of Saskatchewan agriculture.

This year’s ceremony is on July 30 at the Western Development Museum in Saskatoon, which houses the Hall of Fame. The ceremony will honour six inductees – Brynne Rothwell, Florian Possberg, Barry Andrew, Linda Braun, Robin Morrall and Pat Beaujot. The ceremony runs from 5 - 8:30 p.m.

Tickets are $40 per person or $320 for a corporate table of eight. They can be purchased by contacting r.andrew@sasktel.net.

Also new this year, memberships to SAHF will be open to any agriculture association, organization and business with a vested interest in agriculture. Individuals are still able to purchase personal memberships which will cost $50. Memberships for associations are $100 and $200 for corporations. Those interested in joining are encouraged to become a member.

More information on past inductees can be found at on the Saskatchewan Hall of Fame Website. For more information on the event, contact Reed at 306-536-7892 or r.andrew@sasktel.net.
