Blog / TRINUS at the 2018 ACHESON BUSINESS ASSOCIATION SPRING LUNCHEON
The Acheson Business Association Spring Luncheon went off without a hitch, hosting the following Guest Speakers:
Stony Plain MLA Erin Babcock, speaking on local economic issues such as the Growth & Diversification Act, Coal Fire Shutdowns and the resulting effects on the local economy, as well as an immediate need for the Highway 60 Rail Overpass Project to be placed on the Alberta Government Funded List.
Alberta Finance Minister Joe CeCi, addressing the new Alberta Budget.
Keynote Speaker Herb Holmes, giving a formidable Presentation on the Economy, with both sobering and positive FACTS for Alberta’s future, from a Construction perspective (click here to view his presentation.)
Both emcees, Jo-Anne Willis – ABA Director and Natalie Birnie – ABA Executive Director, helped to very creatively and convincingly remind Minister Ceci about making funding of the Highway 60 Rail Overpass Project an absolute TOP PRIORITY for the region.
Luncheon attendees were asked to wear Hockey jerseys to honour the loss resulting from the Humboldt Broncos Hockey Team Bus Tragedy. Four members from the Spruce Grove Saints Hockey Team attended as guests of the ABA. A moment of silence was held, recognizing their collective bereavement. The ABA has determined that a $1,000 donation will be made to the Alberta STARS Air Ambulance Service, in honour of the Humboldt Broncos.
There were four of us in attendance from TRINUS: Dave White, Kevin White, Jon Harmon, and Chris Penn.
