At the annual Junior Farmers Association of Ontario’s March Conference event this past weekend in Belleville, the Renfrew Country Junior Farmers were surprised and ecstatic to be named the 2017 Club of the Year for all of Ontario. This marked the first time this title has ever been awarded to Renfrew County. Some of the outstanding highlights from the past year that factored into the win included celebrating over 100 years of Junior Farmers in Renfrew County with a hugely successful banquet in January, hosting the provincial event Autumn Profile in October with huge amounts of community support, organizing a bottle drive that raised over $1200 for the Cobden Food Bank, and consistently having large member participation in provincial events throughout the year. The Renfrew County Junior Farmers would like to thank everyone who supported us throughout 2017 and helped to make it as successful as it was. We could not have achieved everything we did without the amazing support we received from our family, alumni, and the community. We hope to carry this success through the rest of 2018 and continue to give back to the community through donations, club projects and volunteering.
