WAWOTA - Congratulations to Bob and Margaret Easton on being presented with a 75-year award for continuous membership in the Canadian Angus Association. It began with James Easton, then his son Frank Easton, Jim and Bob Easton, and now Bob and Margaret Easton.

Congratulations also to Dale and Shelly Easton and daughter Erika on receiving their 75-year award. Erika is the fourth generation to be involved in the farm. The award was presented at their annual spring sale on April 4.
