Back in the first week of March 1983 the Bashaw Agricultural Society held its second annual Winter Carnival and it was a busy few days. The story posted in the March 9 edition of the Bashaw Star’s front page with highlights of the event. For the photo on the left these three youngsters, (l-r) Stephen Pearson, Vincent Schneider and Dale Weins, were the winners of the children’s scavenger hunt. They each won $25 and decided to donate the winnings to the Bashaw peewee provincial hockey team. For the photo on right, Jack Ball is pictured with his son Graham. He was the winner of the fish derby with this prize that weighed in at one pound 15.5 ounces. All of the trophies in the event were provided by the Bashaw Ag Society. It was a busy day with events such as an ice sculpture contest, an adults scavenger hunt contest as well as a busy Bashaw Figure Skating Club Ice Carnival. Star photo
