2019 will be at Hickson Public School

The Embro & Zorra Agricultural Society and its Safety Committee Members are proud to present the 4th Annual Progressive Ag Safety Day at Hickson Central Public School on June 13. 

With help from our volunteers and partners, students will experience 31 stations of interactive displays with information to help keep them safe on the farm and in the community. Stations will include safety information covering a variety of settings, including: tractors, roads, bikes, trains, electrical, fire, chemical, water, calling 911, and more. 

We would like to extend our gratitude to our many sponsors, donors and volunteers for making this important day possible for our youth. If you wish to help by donating or volunteering, please call Marian at 519-872-1707.
