CHESTERVILLE – Chanelle Martin received the Stormont-Glengarry Junior Farmers 2021 Award of Merit during the organization’s April 6 meeting.

“The Award of Merit is presented to a Junior Farmer member who is present at the meetings, always willing to volunteer their time if it’s helping 4-H, volunteering at fairs and even planning some events for the youth or the club itself,” commented Martin before continuing to describe how the award recognizes the contribution of recipients to the community. 

Martin is currently the vice president of Stormont-Glengarry Junior Farmers and mentioned that she has been a Junior Farmer member for six years.  She wished to thank the club for this honour as well as Lawrence Dairy Supply for donating the award.  “We all have busy lives, but it is important to give back to your community.  That’s something my parents have always told us.  I’m just trying to give back to my beautiful community.
