The SAASE Clark Lewis and Anne Lewis West Coast Amusements Bert and Grace Dalgleish Memorial Scholarships
Agriculture in Saskatchewan lost a great leader when Clark Lewis passed away in March of 2005. Clark had a long history with SAASE. He was an active board member of the predecessor to SAASE – Saskatchewan Agricultural Societies Association, was a member of the Minister’s Review Committee in 1986, and of the steering committee responsible for the amalgamation of SASA and the Saskatchewan Association of Fairs and Exhibitions. Through numerous re-elections to the Board by his peers, and until his retirement in 1995, Clark served on all committees and offices of SAASE. The legacy of his leadership style of patient perseverance and dedicated service remains with agricultural societies and exhibitions throughout Saskatchewan. It was felt by the SAASE Board of Directors that because of the immense contribution and dedication of Clark Lewis to SAASE that a scholarship bearing his name would be appropriate.
West Coast Amusements
West Coast Amusements has expanded the SAASE scholarship program in 2012 by adding 2 additional scholarships. The scholarships are in honour of Bert and Grace Dalgleish, who had been with West Coast Amusements for many years, and had dedicated themselves to the fair industry. The two scholarships are for $1,000 each and will be awarded yearly based on the original criteria set up for the SAASE scholarships. SAASE would like to thank Bob and Wendy Hauser and West Coast Amusements for partnering with SAASE on our scholarship program.
SAASE will continue to use the proceeds from the silent auction and 50/50 draws at the convention to assist in funding the program. Over the last few years the silent suction has grown with both the number of items, as well as the support that we receive from convention delegates. A big thank you goes out to everyone for their continued support of this great program.
