About NEA

Attention ALL members! We now have a security system on the grounds!
The alarm will go off so if you haven't gotten a security code
(each person or club will have their own!) please contact us immediately!

As a result of the theft of our lawntractor that was stolem from the Agriplex by someone with a key, we are asking all members to confirm that they are in possession of their Agriplex key.
Please notify us if you have lost or loaned out your key.


The incident happened during the day on April 13, 2017 by a man of slim build and everage height. He drove into the Agriplex and loaded the lawn tractor up in his 4-door American style RED truck and drove away. He had a key. Please contact us if you heard or saw anything. Thank-you!
