The new Agri-Culture Centre is starting to take shape at the fairgrounds in Ormstown. Mark Anderson, the president of the Livestock Breeders Association of the District of Beauharnois (LBA), placed the traditional ‘whetting bush,’ or pine bough, at the top of the freshly constructed timber frame building on October 6 while Curtis Deschambault of Heirloom Timber Frames held the ladder steady. According to the Hinchinbrooke-based timber framing company, the act of ‘topping off,’ or placing a pine bough at the highest peak of a newly completed frame, pays homage to the trees that were used in the construction of the building.
