Manitoba Agricultural Hall of Fame inductees and past Red River Exhibition Farm Families of the Year will be getting together next week for a Harvest Gala Dinner.

"This being Homecoming year in Manitoba. We thought this was a good opportunity to recognize some major events and progress in agriculture," says Morris Deveson, Ag Hall of Fame director and chair of the Gala Dinner Committee. "We're attempting to raise enough funds to start a new scholarship for a student wanting to go into agriculture."

The endowed scholarship will be awarded annually and administered by the Red River Exhibition Association.

Garth Rogerson, CEO of the RREA, is extending the invitation to the dinner to all Manitobans interested in celebrating our province's agricultural successes.

The dinner will be held at the Viscount Gort Hotel in Winnipeg on Thursday, October 21.
