Aldergrove groups to combine forces

Aldergrove Festival Days Society and the Aldergrove Agricultural Association have combined forces

Aldergrove Festival Days Society and the Aldergrove Agricultural Association have combined forces and will be known as Aldergrove-Langley Agricultural Fair and Festival Association (ALAFFA).

A special meeting of the two non-profit organizations was held Sept. 17 at Coghlan Hall and the Aldergrove Festival Days Society members voted by a 75 per cent margin to join with the Aldergrove Agricultural Association. The amalgamation ensures that the charter date of the Aldergrove Agricultural Association is preserved and that the Coghlan Hall ownership will be retained by the new association.

The name of the association shall be the Aldergrove-Langley Agricultural Fair and Festival Association (ALAFFA).

The Aldergrove-Langley Agricultural Fair and Festival Association (ALAFFA) shall also conduct business as Aldergrove Fair Days and retain the web site www.aldergrovefairdays.com/.

The new organization will continue to organize and present the annual special events in Aldergrove, such as the Aldergrove FireFit Festival, Aldergrove Fair Days and Aldergrove Christmas Parade. The organization is also responsible for operations and rentals of Coghlan Hall.

In related news, the annual general meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m., Tuesday, October 8 at the Coghlan Community Hall, 6795 – 256 St., Aldergrove. The year-end reports will be presented and the 2013-1014 directors will be elected.
