  • Paul Hock
  • Megan Thoms
  • Adam J Shaw
  • Andrew Robillard
  • Bill Beattie
  • Donna Pritchard
  • Deb Deckert

Toast of the Towns 2013 - Alan Argue

Audience members will also have the opportunity to participate in a silent auction where pieces of Argues art work will be featured as well as donations from area merchants.

Argue lived in Centre Wellington for more than 30 years before recently moving to Alberta to live with his daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter. He was and continues to be a strong supporter of local arts and culture. With a talent for both music and painting, he was a regular participant in local art exhibitions and performances. He was also the coordinator for the Fergus Grand Theatre for several years and the director of popular performances such as Snow, Bah-Humbug and many others.

He served as both a member of the Fergus Lions Club and more recently the Ariss Lions Club. Community has always been an important part of Argue’s life and those hosting the Toast of the Towns event want to bring the community together in his honour.
