Junior Farmers Association of Ontario hosted a booth, in the Focus on Youth tent, at this years’ International Plowing Match, held in Huron County Sept 19-23. The week long event started off very wet and ended as a scorcher, but our members’ enthusiasm all week was very noticeable.
One new item added this year was our volunteer shirts, that said Keep Calm and Join Junior Farmers. These shirts definitely attracted a lot of attention.
Our members who volunteered at the booth, loved the chance to meet new people, and hear stories from our Alumni/Members who stopped by the booth to say Hi. During the event they also enjoyed the chance to promote our organization, our century farm sign program, along with our gate sign initiative. Plans for attending the 2018 IPM are already underway.
