The Southern Alberta Grain Elevator Society (SAGES) has been formed to facilitate the move and preservation of the historic 1925 Ogilvie grain elevator.
SAGES has been the process of garnering support through the creation of information brochures and fliers that have been mailed out / posted. If you are interested in either, please email us or follow the contact information on the attached flier.
SAGES has contacted Kearn’s Moving from Taber for an quote for moving the elevator and the auxiliary buildings.
SAGES estimates that $250,000 will be required for moving and for the preservation of the elevator and auxiliary buildings. SAGES will be approaching local government grain / agricultural companies, private donors, and possibly the provincial / federal levels for possible avenues of money that can be used for this exciting project.
If you are interested in joining this new group please feel free to contact SAGES via the information on the flier, or attend their upcoming kick off meeting, Sunday March 17th, 1:30 pm downstairs in the Theater Gallery, at the downtown Lethbridge Library!
