Crews are being rounded up to bring in the wheat crop on a field southeast of the Nova Chemicals plant at Joffre, starting a noon. The field is located on the north side of Hwy 11 at Range Road 25-0.

Proceeds from the crop go to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, which is celebrating 30 years of fighting hunger with assistance from Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada.

Goodwill offerings will be gratefully accepted and added to the funds being raised.

Please note that the harvest will be postponed in the event of foul weather.
