FARMER OF THE YEAR

by Minnedosa Tribune

Clifford D. Lundman of Erickson, Manitoba has been elected Mr. Manitoba Farmer for 1973, it was announced last week by Gill Shaw, chairman of Manisphere's Mr. Manitoba Farmer committee.

Mr. Lundman and his family will be guests of Manisphere from June 24 to June 26, during which time, a full schedule of events will take place, including a special dinner, an evening cruise on the Red River, visits to various civic and governmental functions and special recognitions. "As one who has always been close to the agricultural industry," said Mr. Shaw, "it is my opinion that the Mr. Manitoba Farmer award has grown and developed into one of the most widely publicized awards of recognition for agricultural competence and com­ munity activity.
