Deadline Approaching for Tommy Cooper Award

Grey Bruce | by Ken Hashizume  

Nominations for the 2019 award is next Friday March 15th at 12 Noon.


You don't have a lot of time to nominate a farmer for the Tommy Cooper Award.

The deadline to submit nominations is next Friday March 15th at 12 Noon.

The award -- presented by Bayshore Broadcasting and the Owen Sound Sun Times -- is given out to an individual for his or her outstanding contribution to local agriculture.

Harry Reinders of Meaford (in photo with Robyn Garvey) was the recipient of the award in 2018.

The award is named after the late Grey County agricultural representative who served as a provincial government farm extension worker for 39 years (1920-1959).

Cooper was credited with helping area farmers adapt to new scientific and mechanical innovations in the first half of the 20th Century.

The winner will be announced at a ceremony on Friday March 29th at the Elmwood Community Centre.
