Concert called off

Slow ticket sales have prompted the Stettler District Agricultural Society to cancel this Saturday’s concert, which was supposed to feature Julian Austin and One More Girl.

“Due to poor ticket sales, the board of directors has decided to cancel the event,” agricultural society acting president Laurel Pole said Tuesday.

“We didn’t want to do an injustice to Julian Austin and One More Girl.”

Pole said the ag society was in the process of notifying those people who had already bought tickets.
