  • When we had our Ghent Woman’s Club meeting and Christmas get-together in early December, we were asked to tell what some of our Christmas memories were and what we would be doing for Christmas. Since our theme was “Christmas Memories,”  it was a wonderful evening of reminiscing for all of us. We discussed our family’s holiday meal traditions, as well.  We had such a good time.

  • Children can learn many valuable life lessons while working with livestock, and everyone loves to see children and animals working together.  However, it’s important to remember livestock can be dangerous. 

    Injur-ies from livestock-related accidents are a major source of harm that is suffered by children in agricultural settings.

  • The Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard wrote a story about a wild duck. The wild duck was flying with his fellow comrades in the springtime northward across Europe. At one point during the flight the flock spotted a barnyard and decided to descend and rest. When they landed they immediately noticed the barnyard was occupied by a large number of tame ducks. The wild duck did not realize at the time that this chance encounter would change the course of his life.
