Junior Farmers host Sing Swing

The Prince Edward County Junior Farmer’s club – for the first time in over a decade – will host Sing Swing, an event that brings young farmers from across Ontario to one county to celebrate traditional traditions like square-dancing and two-stepping, will be hosted this month by Prince Edward’s club.

“Prince Edward Junior Farmers is proud to be the hosts of this year’s Sing Swing event,” said Jennifer Courneyea, president of the Prince Edward County Junior Farmers’ club. “There hasn’t been a JF event hosted by our Prince Edward club locally since the early 90s and we couldn’t be happier to show other county clubs what Prince Edward County has to offer.”

Since the Junior Farmers of Ontario club was created more than 90 years ago, rural youth between the ages of 15 to 29 from all walks of life, occupations and backgrounds gather locally with their club at least once a month to fundraise for charities, run dances, compete in sports and cultural events, host international delegates, and to simply come together to show support not only for agriculture but their communities as a whole.

Provincially, members of Junior Farmers are able to attend events hosted by a different JF club each year. These events include Sing Swing, Winter Games, March Conference, Autumn Profile and a variety of other banquets, forums, camps and competitions that showcase each clubs’ skills and forms of activism. The events are also a great social gathering, allowing club members to meet other youth interested in bettering their communities and promoting agriculture.

In particular, Sing Swing is a provincial event held annually at the end of November. Hosted by a different club each year, Sing Swing allows club members to participate and compete against other clubs in a variety of activities including euchre tournaments, square-dancing competitions and public speaking competitions. Following the day’s events, an awards banquet takes place, ending with a dinner and dance social.

The Prince Edward County Junior Farmer Club encourages and welcomes everyone to attend the dinner and dance being held at 6p.m. on Nov. 29 at the Strathcona Paper Centre in Napanee. The dinner and dance cost $25 per person, the dance only is $10 per person.  There will be a cash bar, and the dress code is “no jeans.
