The Swift Current & District Chamber of Commerce is hosting its 3rd Annual “Farmer Appreciation Night” on March 24th, 2017. Our chamber realizes the importance and impact the farming community has on the sustainability of our economy. We feel that a celebration is essential to recognize and commemorate our farming community.
