Stettler Agricultural Society recognizes Chapman and Stuckey’s exceptional service

Community members were invited to a supper on Thursday evening, Aug. 11 to witness the recognition of two of the society's best.

A few people from the community were invited to a supper on Thursday evening, Aug. 11 to witness the recognition of two of Stettler Agricultural Society’s exceptional volunteers, Dale Chapman and Twyla Stuckey.

“The Society does not make a practice of recognizing individuals normally but both Dale Chapman and Twyla Stuckey have given exceptional service in volunteering for our organization over a number of years,” said Phil Holton, president of the Stettler Agricultural Society.

Holton said that both Chapman and Stuckey had gone beyond their roles to serve the society.

“They both went above and beyond in their time with the society and they will both be greatly missed as board directors,” added Holton. “Nothing was ever too much for them to do.”

With about a small group of people who had come in to show their support, it was an evening of great conversation and memories.

Holton, who has been president of the society for two years, said that he had and would continue to enjoy working with a great group of people.

“I hope I have contributed to the growth of the society and its continued smooth running and will continue to work with the others,” he added.

With major ground renovations and building upgrades throughout the year, Holton said, “We are very happy that the society has a sound financial footing.”

Although Twyla Stuckey was unable to attend the event, all attendees lauded her service.

One of the office managers, Darla Rairdan has also retired from her position.

“I would like to thank her for all her efforts in her time with us,” said Holton.
