48th Annual Flower, Baking & Photography Show held in Trochu

Trochu Flower Show 2017

Leona Pryor, the chief organizer and spokesperson for the Trochu 48th Annual Flower, Baking & Photography Show, was quite pleased with the number and quality of submissions to the event held at the Community Hall on August 16.

Doors opened at 2 pm and refreshments, (home baking, luncheon sandwiches and tea) were being served from 2 to 4 pm. The chicken supper, prepared by Sweet Grass Café, was served at 6:00 pm.

Mrs. Pryor indicated that there was an especially good showing in the vegetables section.

Obvious by its absence this year was the usual display of the gladiolus section with the major grower having suffered a blight to the whole crop. Truly a great loss.

This annual event is sponsored by the Trochu Elks and the Trochu Ag Society and they pay for the hall rental and printing of the show booklets, and the hiring of the AHA (Alberta Horticulture Association) judges. The Trochu Flower Show is an affiliate of the AHA.
