On Nov. 14 the Ponoka Agricultural Society’s second annual Harvest Hoedown will be taking place at the Kinsmen Centre.

Cocktails begin at 6:30 p.m. and a full supper is set to commence at 7 p.m.

A dance and live entertainment from John Wart Hannam will follow until it’s time to head home.

John Wart Hannam from southern Alberta has been deemed one of Canada’s most promising new songwriters known to put on an engaging performance with his story-telling lyrics. He was named a 2007 New Folk Winner at the prestigious Kerriville, Texas Folk Festival and was the Best Song Winner at the Calgary Folk Festival Songwriting Competition in 2007 on top of many other notable awards and nominations.

Sherri Gummow, president of the Ag-society, heard Hannam at another event and knew he would be perfect for this one. Last year’s first annual Harvest Hoedown was a success, but there was only dinner and live entertainment and no dance. This year, the event is bigger and better and she expects it to be a great evening for everyone involved.

“The Ag Society stands for traditional value and we’re working hard to be a driving force in the community,” said Gummow. “The hoedown is a chance to bring the community together for a night of fun in support of great causes. All proceeds raised will be going towards Ag-society projects such as the 4-H Club, High School Rodeo, Big Brothers Big Sisters and the new Ag Event Centre,” she said.

Tickets are still available and can be purchased at Busted Ltd. or by phoning Joyce Winter at 403-783-1325.
