Livestock Breeders Association: Meeting in new year will determine fate of Dining Hall

The Livestock Breeders Association of the District of Beauharnois (LBA), the non-profit that owns and cares for the Ormstown fairgrounds, announced at its AGM on December 7 that it will hold a meeting of its members in early 2023 to determine whether their project to build a new dining hall will go ahead.

As with any large project, there are many elements to be settled before ground can be broken, and board members involved with the project are busy acquiring surveyor’s reports and permits, in order to be prepared if the LBA’s members decide to go ahead with the demolition of the existing building and the construction of the updated facility.

Mark Anderson, president of the LBA, says the meeting will be held “as soon as we’ve got all the details” related to the project, specifying that “If the whole membership decides they don’t want to do this, we won’t do this.”

Editor’s note: The reporter on this article is a member of the LBA and attended the organization’s AGM as such, but the reporting on the meeting was done with the permission of LBA president Mark Anderson.
