2021 looked very different for many clubs across the province, and Durham West JF was no different. We learned to adapt to online versions of socials, meetings and our AGM. Despite the pandemic, nothing slowed us down! We were able to have our annual Can, Bottle, and Battery Drive, participate in the Sunderland Santa Claus Parade, host a virtual Bingo Night in April, helping another social media group celebrate World Act of Kindness Day, as well as contributing to and participating in JFAO online events, activities, and challenges! The highlight of 2021 was our virtual speaker series, featuring leaders in our Agricultural Community, featuring topics such as Finance (Farm Lending), Construction, Cash Cropping and Alternatives, and managing an online farm stores and direct sales to customers.
