  • Glengarry Holstein Club's fun family affair
    By Kalynn Sawyer Helmer - AgriNews Staff Writer

    MARTINTOWN -- The Glengarry Holstein Club's annual twilight meeting and family fun night was on Mon., July 18. The festivities began at 7 p.m. and included a bouncy castle for kids, a petting zoo, and great food and drink.

    The event was hosted at Cherry Crest Holsteins in Martintown, Ont. Hundreds of people stopped by the evening to chat with their friends and neighbours. Shortly after the party began, the Board of Directors of Holstein Canada arrived on a chartered bus, to chat up the attendees and visit the farm.

    After dinner was served and the line had dwindled down, Cherry Crest Holstein's owner Don Johnston got up to say a few words about the farm. Johnston's son Kevin now runs Cherry Crest Holsteins, after Don and his wife Nancy Beerwort moved down the road. Cherry Crest's products and machinery were sold off by Don Johnston's father when Don was 10 years old. Later in life when Don and his wife moved to the Martintown area and bought their own farm, the original family farm name came with them. The sentiment of the family farm and amusing stories told about the Johnston family put smiles on the guests' faces.

    The evening's program wrapped up with the official introduction of Holstein Canada's Board of Directors and an auction whereby all money raised would be donated to the Glengarry 4-H. The barns and grounds were open for guests to enjoy and roam around. Tasty ice cream, varied desserts and refreshments were served well into the evening. The Glengarry Holstein Club's family night was buzzing with the conversations of good friends and the helpful advice of neighbouring farmers, indicating a good time.
