On behalf of the Village of Edgerton I extend our warmest welcome and invite you to spend some time exploring our community!

So far, we’ve had a pretty good summer with an abundance of rain for the crops and some nice weather to make for an optimum growing season. With reports of hail in the community, we haven’t heard of any severe structural damage and are keeping our fingers crossed that we don’t experience any more severe weather before harvest.

We hosted our 7th Annual Community BBQ on June 3rd and there was a large crowd in attendance. Village Council cooked in excess of 300 burgers plus many dozen hot dogs! This event continues to grow every year and we anticipate an even larger crowd next year!

The Edgerton Emergency Services Department was host to the 2019 Fire and Wheels Event the weekend of June 7th and 8th, and after all expenses paid, they raised just shy of $50,000! These funds will help to upgrade and/or replace fire fighting apparatus and gear. This event is a huge undertaking, but as usual, our EESD did a stellar job as host!

August 7th was our 2nd Annual Block Party & Chili Cookoff. The attendance was larger than last year and those who came had a great time judging the Chili and enjoying the fellowship. Eagles Nest Out of School Care’s Director, Amy Klassen, organized activities for the children and did a fantastic job of entertaining the many children in attendance. The very talented Tracy Christensen from Chauvin had a never ending lineup of children to have their faces painted. Our Chili Judges, Sgt Wes Bensmiller, Brenda Redhead and Dave Laporte had a tough time to choose the top three…..1st – Dode McMann, 2nd – Al Gordon, and 3rd - Becky Gardipee. The PEOPLE’S CHOICE award went to Becky Gardipee! It was nice to see Garth Rowswell, MLA for Vermilion, Lloydminster, Wainwright and he commented that this will be an annual event for him! Thank you to our judges, the two ladies who provided entertainment for the children, the chili contestants and to all those that came.

Our Village has looked great all summer both with a little help from Mother Nature and Max McMillan and his crew of Dennis and summer students Michael and Rhiana.

It’s been nice to see some former residents here for a visit this summer as well. Edgerton is “Always Home.” 

Did You Know?

The first Edgerton school opened in 1910, which was a one room building. Due to its size the school was able to accommodate 50-60 pupils. During the winter months, the children's school lunches quite often had to be placed around the stove to thaw out.
