The Canadian Foodgrains Bank never know what to expect from their generous donors.

The Canadian Foodgrains Bank never know what to expect from their generous donors.

That’s why they encourage everyone to come out to their 12th annual sale April 17 beginning at 1p.m. at the Vold Jones Vold Auction Market.

Spokesman Larry Henderson expects the usual donations of beef and dairy cattle, goats, rabbits and hay bales, and this year’s sale will feature several bred heifers, and a butchered hog from Family Meats.

“It’s kind of a surprise on sale day,” Henderson said. “You don’t know what’s going to come in the door.”

Last year the sale raised $55,000 in support of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank’s efforts to eliminate world hunger.

Like the rest of the farm community, the Ponoka Foodgrains Project is waiting for spring and sowing its crop.
