Forklift Attachments Strathmore

Forklift Attachments Strathmore - The town of Strathmore is located within southern Alberta along the Trans-Canada Highway. It is located within Wheatlan County, approximately 25 miles or 40 kilometres east of the city of Calgary.

The town of Strathmore began as a hamlet for the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) lines that were built within the area in the year 1883. The CPR named the town of Strathmore after one of its benefactors: Claude Bowes-Lyon, the Earl of Strathmore. A track laying record was made between Cheadle and Strathmore when the railroad was built. In one hour, one mile (1.6 km) of steel was laid and the rails were laid to Cheadle, 9 miles (14 km) for a record. Efforts by the Canadian government to develop western Canada resulted in increases in the population of the town of Strathmore and its importance as a rail supply stop.

At present, the town of Strathmore is an important agricultural community. Oil and gas exploration is also a growing interest within the region. It is the headquarters of the Golden Hills School Division. Many individuals travel daily from Strathmore to Calgary. During the last three years the town has seen a main growth in commercial development.

The Town of Strathmore has an approximate population of 12,139 residents, according to the latest 2010 municipal census. This represents an increase of 2.5% over the 2009 municipal census population of 11,838. At its present population, Strathmore is among the largest towns within the province and is eligible for city status. Based on the Municipal Government Act of Alberta, a town is qualified for city status when it reaches 10,000 residents.

The town has hosted a yearly fair and "Heritage Days" Rodeo ever since the year 1966, on the long weekend during August. The Heritage Days Rodeo turned professional during 1985, becoming a Canadian Professional Rodeo Association sanctioned event. In addition to hosting Pro Rodeo that weekend, the year 1988 saw the addition of the World Professional Chuckwagon Association Finals come to our grounds.

During the 1990's, there was a concerted effort to focus on a change of image to the weekend event. The event began to incorporate a more family theme, incorporating local entertainment stage, children's entertainment, livestock show, craft/bench show, outdoor family entertainment show ring, machinery show, trade show, parade, fireworks and midway. The hosting of these events annually each August long weekend created a main tourist spot to the Town of Strathmore and nearby areas as indicated by its growing attendance.
