The Ronan Chamber of Commerce has decided to go forward with the annual hay bale decoration contest. CSKT has won the last three years. Those who wish to get hay bales this year, please let me know. I will coordinate the ordering of hay bales. Final day to order hay bales is August 25th.

As before, the Communications Office will pay for the cost of each bale and coordinate delivery. Any decoration expenses and supplies must come from your departments. Supervisors and Department heads must approve participation. Delivery is offered from SKHA to the Kicking Horse turn.

The theme this year is heroes, real life heroes.

This is intended to be a fun event. I know people look forward to seeing the public displays of creativity. However, it should be said that everyone is under additional stress than in years past. No one is obligated to order and decorate a hay bale. But if you wish to go ahead, settle on designs and let me know: how many you need, how you want them set up (flat side down, or flat side sideways). Stacking more than two has been a problem in the past years.
