Summer Events at the Lone Pine Hall

Neighbours in the Lone Pine Alberta area get together over coffee, help each other during the fall harvest, with calving, and even get together for social activities at the local community hall. In the summer months, our regular events include a Bench Fair in August.

Lone Pine Scholarship

The Lone Pine Agricultural Society awards one scholarship in the amount of $500 to an eligible student for full-time study at a qualifying Canadian college or university.

Any student who has lived in the surrounding community of the Lone Pine Hall is eligible to apply for the scholarship provided they have received a valid high school diploma or will be eligible to receive a diploma during the year of application.

Scholarship Applications must be received by May 31st each year. The scholarship will be awarded to the recipient in the month of August and will be contacted by phone.

Bench Fair

Fairs have been part of community activities in Alberta since the late 1800s. One part of a traditional agricultural fair is the Bench Show. At Lone Pine, our Bench Fair includes classes in flowers, potted plants, fruits, canning and pickling, vegetables, baking, sewing, knitting, quilting, handicrafts, artwork, photography, and pioneer skills such as eggs, homemade salad dressing and molasses, and sheaf grains. We also have an arts and crafts section for Juniors and Teens, and Senior exhibitors.

Handicrafts and photography are always popular ... and the quilts! Oh yes, the quilts are definite favourites.Organizers Susan Page and Joanne Hannah and their team of dedicated volunteers and judges work long hours to put the Fair together. We are so appreciative to all those who enter their admirable work, and to the corporate and individual sponsors and donors who help reward the entrants.

Our Bench Fair usually runs mid-August, with exhibits arriving on the Tuesday evening, judging on Wednesday throughout the day, then viewing on Wednesday evening. Refreshments are always served and it's a great way to visit with neighbours and see the talent in our region.

Until further notice, the Bench Fair has been cancelled due to there being no Coordinator. Please contact Susan Page 403-994-0481 or any Lone Pine Ag Society Executive member if you are able to take this on.
