Ellis Bird Farm held their AGM on March 13th. The highlights of the meeting included two donation cheque presentations. EBF Treasurer, Barb Shepherd, accepted cheques from the Kiwanis Club of Red Deer (from left, Joe Yamniuk, Larry Pimm, Alec Robertson, Gerry Stelmaschuk) as well as the Twilight Homes Foundation ( Alec Robertson, Marvin Bruce, Vic Willoughby). We are very grateful to both organizations for their ongoing support of Ellis Bird Farm.
