Merina Johnston, who was raised on a Martintown farm, is the new General Manager of Ontario Holstein. Her parents, Nancy Beerwort and Don Johnston, farm along with her brother, Kevin, at Cherry Crest Holsteins. Merina was involved with 4-H as a member and later as a leader for the Glengarry 4-H club.
A movement has started in Glengarry and Stormont counties to revive the Junior Farmers Club. The Junior Farmers club is for young people ages 15-29 who have an interest in agriculture, or just want to be a part of the action. To recruit new members, a fun night will be held February 13 at 8 p.m. at Tagwi Secondary School. Those in attendance will play volleyball, eat snacks, and discuss the future of the club.
