Meaghan Weber travelled to Middlesex County for the weekend of July 15-17. She was hosted by Christena Jenkins-Giffen. The weekend gave her the chance to meet many of the members of the Middlesex club. There were also plenty of tours of local agricultural businesses organized including a flower farm and a grain elevators. On the Saturday evening, Middlesex members also gathered for a campfire social at Christena’s. A great time was had by everyone that participated in the exchange and Meaghan was able to explore beautiful Middlesex while making some new JF friends.

Elizabeth-and-Christine exchange

Exchange between Elizabeth Bruce from Oxford and Christine Wyville from Grey

August 5-7, 2022

 

I had an awesome exchange with Grey County JF over a weekend in August. The first night I was able to meet most of the Grey JF members at a backyard BBQ and pool party at my host, Christine Wyville’s house near Markdale. I was able to visit several members’ workplaces and farms over the weekend including a beef show herd, a sheep operation and a fertilizer business. We hiked up Old Baldy, a lookout point 150 metres above the Beaver Valley and hiked to see the waterfall at Indian Falls. I also to played tourist and checked out the ski village in Collingwood. It was a wonderful weekend spent with new and old JF friends! I’d highly recommend going on any of the many JF exchange opportunities, you won’t regret it!
