Families, children, staff, students and faculty all flocked to the Agricultural Campus on Thursday to check out this year’s Community Open House. With the sun shining brightly, smiling children and adults, and crowds of people strolling from one attraction to the next, it was clear that a good time was had by all.
Many new attractions were on campus this year. For the first time, local blacksmith Tom Spence attended and crafted handmade rings made from horseshoe nails. Also new to Community Open House this year were the activities in the Community Garden. Then there were the returning attractions like Fred Hamilton's sheep dog demonstrations and the ever-popular sheep shearing demonstrations taking took place in the Ruminant Animal Centre — always a must-see destination.
While many attended just to tour the beautiful campus and check out the attractions, some were visiting on a different agenda. A number of prospective students arrived seeking formal tours around campus and questions regarding programs and student life. With the opportunity to meet professors, alumni, and current students, Community Open House welcomed students who could potentially be returning to campus this fall to study.
The organizers now shift their attention towards making next year's Community Open House bigger and better than ever.
