The Provincial Exhibition of Manitoba has a new Board President.
Kathy Cleaver replaces Greg Crisanti who held the position since February 2020. Crisanti will remain on the Executive as Past President.
“We’re looking forward to getting through this year,” says Cleaver, who had been a member of the Executive Board for the past seventeen years. “Hard work has helped get us to where we are today and I have to say that we’re proud of where we’re at and excited about the future.”
Meanwhile Clint Swain was elected Vice President of the Provincial Exhibition Board during Monday night’s Directors Annual General Meeting at the Dome Building.
Swain, who is entering his fourth year with the Board, is excited to be taking on a larger role with the Provincial Exhibition.
“The Provincial Ex has been so important for this community and I believe that its important to have strong voices and a strategic plan as we look down the road. I am looking forward to the challenge ahead,” says Swain.
In addition to the appointments of Swain and Cleaver, five directors were chosen to the Executive Board. Connie Bok, Dallas Johnston, Clarke Swain and Shirley Neudorf were reelected while Brent Miller was elected to a new two-year term.
Joining them on the Executive are Mitchell Easley, Ange Pearen and Wayne Buhr.
The Provincial Exhibition continues to prepare for two upcoming events – February’s President’s Dinner at the Victoria Inn and the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair in March. The Fair has been cancelled the past two years due to the covid-19 pandemic while the Dinner was unable to go ahead in 2021.
While ticket sales to the dinner, scheduled for Thursday, February 24, have been going well, there are a limited number of tickets available. To order or for more information, call (204) 726-3590.
Proceeds from the dinner and auctions will benefit Agriculture Education.
