The Carseland & District Community Association & Agricultural Society is a registered non-profit charitable organization that operates under the governance of the Alberta Association of Agricultural Societies (AAAS).
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, Millennium Ball Park, Downey Centennial Park and the outdoor skating rink.
The funding required to operate these facilities is obtained through rentals of the facilities; Provincial funding through AAAS; Municipal Funding from Wheatland County; Alberta Lotteries Grants; donations from individuals and community groups including the Carseland Jet Setters, Carseland PB Club, the Carseland Lions Club.
Individuals who are over the age of 18 and a resident of Alberta may become a member of this organization. The cost for membership is $15.00 per family per year.
A volunteer board of directors is elected annually to make decisions regarding the day to day business of the society in accordance with its bylaws. This board is accountable to the Membership holders of the Association and reports to these members at an Annual General Meeting held in the fall.
Our annual “Aggie Days” runs at the end of June in conjunction with the local Lions Club Barbecue 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 Carseland & District Community Association & Agricultural Society is engaged within the community to improve the Quality of Life by encouraging improvement in Agriculture and Horticulture by developing programs, services and facilities.
The Board of Directors are individuals who have been elected by Community Association Membership holders to oversee the day to day operations of the Society including programs and events. Positions on the Board are voluntary and require varying amounts of time. Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month with additional meetings if required. Elected Positions are for a term of two years with the option to stand for re-election at the end of that term.
