Canada's Farm Progress Show Stories

A Sacred Holiday

- Laurent & Odette Cruywels

Canada’s Farm Progress Show has always been like a sacred holiday for us. We have attended every year since it first started and are always impressed by the new machinery and inventions that are there. There is always so much to see.

One year I had cancer surgery in May and still made the trip to the farm show in June that same year. We always make a point of going and the trip is always very special.

One year, my husband was with a few other friends walking around the exhibits and saw a draw to win a free truck. The barrel was so full of entries that he had to shove his name in the drum and laughed about the zero percent chance of winning. A few months later he received a call from Canada’s Farm Progress Show staff saying that he had won the truck. It was crazy!

Canada’s Farm Progress Show is such a special event we have here in Saskatchewan and we are already planning our trip to this year’s show in June.
