On October 23 Agtron Enterprises participated in the grand opening of the Weyburn agricultural supplies store E. Bourassa & Sons. They had about 720 people overall — what an awesome turnout — and the lunch was a big success. Everyone that attended the event was greeted by the shop’s friendly staff. One lucky winner even brought home a 2014 Boomer 24 Tractor with a 235 TL Loader.
Meteorologist Drew Lerner gave a great speech called “Can we dry out before Spring?” E. Bourassa also invited Craig Klemmer, Lana Shaw and Tom Wolfe to join in on the festivities. Lorne Klein and Obi Durranen likewise gave talks during their information sessions held during the day in different areas of the building.
