Westerner Park wins industry awards for Westerner Days program, CFR poster

‘It’s an honour to be recognized,’ says marketing manager

Red Deer’s Westerner Park recently won some peer recognition at the Alberta Association of Agriculture Society Convention.

Westerner Park earned first place for the promotional posters for the 46th Canadian Finals Rodeo.

It also placed first for the Westerner Days social media campaign, and nabbed second place for the fair program for the Westerner Days pocket guide.

Westerner Park also won first place for the program for the Dinner on Ice, Long Table Dinner.

As an agricultural society, part of Westerner Park’s mission is to bridge the area’s agricultural roots with the growing urban population — which was the goal of the Dinner on Ice event.

The first one sold out and proved to be a “huge success for not only the guests, but the community as a whole,” states a Westerner Park release.

“It’s an honour to be recognized for our team’s efforts,” said Meghan Samson, the park’s marketing and communications manager.

Each year, the Alberta Association of Agricultural Societies hosts a convention, trade show, awards and AGM.

The non-profit, non-governmental association was formed in 1947 to advocate for and provide resources for the 293 agricultural societies in Alberta.
