Things have been busy in Carleton throughout the summer months and into the beginning of fall. Our main initiative was to “Keep the Cows Moooving!” to raise funds for a local family who suffered a devastating barn fire earlier this year. We were blown away by the support of our community and far surpassed our goal. Check out our Facebook page to see all the lawns our cows were grazing on! Each year our club offers a scholar award to a student attending a post-secondary institution in the fall semester in a program related to agriculture. This year’s scholar award committee received applications from across the province and were happy to present this year’s award to Jasmine Uhr. We also cleaned our adopted roadway in June and plan to do so again this October. Our members have volunteered at local fairs throughout the past two months and were able to get together for a fun softball and pizza social in August!
Oxford Junior Farmers is happy to have been able to have a variety of in person event again. We enjoy being together as a group and being able to meet in person again. We have had some in person meetings and events including soccer baseball, a barbecue, and a fundraiser at the Oxford Drive In. We look forward to more meetings and events for the remainder of the year!
