The Grey Bruce Farmers’ Week Committee, with strong support from producers, sponsors, and agribusiness, has been giving back to the community. GBFW has given a number of donations in the past:
In 2009, following two very successful Dr. Temple Grandin events, GBFW presented Autism Grey Bruce, and Partners In Process Equine Learning Centre with a total of $2,380.00. Dr. Grandin returned to us on Oct. 30th, 2017. Two sold-out events (Livestock Day and Equine Eventing) were held in the Elmwood Community Centre. Once again, we contributed $1000 to Autism Grey Bruce.
In 2011, the GBFW Committee, on behalf of producers and agri-business, committed to sponsoring the mural in the barn of the Saugeen Valley Children’s Safety Village This was a $10,000 donation over a few years. The Saugeen Valley Children’s Safety Village, will be open in 2020
GBFW looks forward to additional opportunities to support worthwhile causes.
