December Meeting Recap
The Young Farmer Club held their December meeting on December 8th, 2020. Over forty students attended the virtual event. Old business was discussed, including Harvest Party Drive-thru, Canned Food Drive, and Voss-Berryhill scholarships. New topics included January meeting, open spring classes, and the ugly Christmas sweater contest. The ugly Christmas sweater contest is an annual event for the club, which was able to continue in a virtual format this year. Students are welcome to submit photos of themselves in Christmas sweaters through Instagram until December 21st, when a winner will be selected via poll.

The next club meeting will take place on January 26th at 7 pm, with guest speaker Yvonne Sams of G3 Enterprises.
