The Carseland & District Community & Agricultural Society is a registered non-profit charitable organization that operates under the umbrella of Alberta Agriculture and the County of Wheatland.
Through funds raised along with grants and donations received over the years, the society owns and operates public facilities within the Hamlet which include the Community Hall, Millennium Park and the Carseland Recreation Center. On behalf of its members, a volunteer board of directors is elected annually to make decisions regarding the business of the society in accordance with its bylaws . This organization operates and maintains facilities in Carseland for use of the general public. These facilities include the Carseland Community Hall, the Carseland Recreation Center and the Millennium Ball Park. In addition to this the Society provides maintenance and upkeep of the children’s playground (Tot Lot) located on Nelson Road and the green space located north of the Carseland Community Hall.
The “Ag Society” as it is locally known, operates with the assistance of local volunteers and support received from local clubs. Our annual “Aggie Days” runs at the end of June in conjunction with the local Lions Club Barbeque and boasts activities for all ages. This event has been getting larger and more exciting every year featuring a parade, ball tournament, trade show, activities for the kids and a dance following dinner on Saturday evening. Hundreds of volunteer hours are required to make this happen and the society is always looking for new ideas and suggestions to improve and expand the festivities.

The Board of Directors is made up of individuals who have been nominated by other Community Association Members. Positions on the Board are voluntary and require varying amounts of time. The Board meets on the second Tuesday of each month and may hold additional meetings if required. Each position is for a term of two years.
The Purpose of this board is to over-see the day to day operation of the Society including the operation and maintenance of its facilities, programs and events. If you live in the community and feel you have some time to offer to become involved with the decision making regarding it, why not let your name stand for nomination so you can start making a difference?
