Glarryford YFC tucked into a very busy winter programme at the end of last year with the annual dinner their starter event.
Ballymena Rugby Club was the venue with David Oliver, YFC Vice President, as guest speaker and the presenter of the annual awards to members.
December 2 saw the return of Glarryford’s big night, ‘The Wife Wants a Farmer’ which was held at Tullyglass Hotel where Lisnamurrican member, Emma Heron, impressed the judges and picked William Beattie from Finvoy YFC as her husband to be!
Also in December, Glarryford members helped organise the annual children’s Christmas party featuring a visit from Santa.
The following week, December 17, Glarryford held their annual Christmas themed tractor run which saw well over 100 tractors attend covered in fantastic Christmas decorations.
With Christmas behind them, Glarryford immediately started practicing for their arts festival performance of ‘Geronimo’ which has been placed in one of the five performances heading to the Gala.
The club have extended their thanks to producers Judy and Jimmy King, Mellisa McComb and to the choreography and backstage crew for all their hard work.
Glarryford Young Farmers also held a ‘Big Breakfast’ and car wash morning for David McClean’s Cancer Treatment fund raising £1574 for a very worthwhile local charitable cause and they have extended “a massive thanks” to everyone who turned up to support and help at the event.
The Club entered two teams in the YFCU Northern Ireland Quiz where one team gained second place. Congratulations have been extended to the members of both teams who took part.
Glarryford Young Farmers’ Club’s top four officials work endlessly throughout the year to maintain the club’s success and the hard work was rewarded at County Antrim’s annual general meeting where Jessica Reid was placed second in ‘top secretary’ and Cathy Reid was placed second in ‘top PRO’.
An upcoming event club supporters - a parents and friends evening, is being held on Saturday, March 25, at 7.30pm at Clough Presbyterian Church.
This will be followed by the Church Service on Sunday, April 9, at Clough Presbyterian Church from 7.30pm.
