‘Farmer to Farmer’ networking success 

HONESDALE, PA — A spirit of cooperation and a shared love of all things farming were evident at the Farmer to Farmer networking event held recently at the Cooperage.

Members of local agricultural groups including Wayne Tomorrow, SEEDS, Wayne County Grown PASA and the Wayne/Pike Farm Bureau made up the crowd of about 60.

Opening the evening were Jenna Mauder of the Cooperage and Zach Jones, Young Ag Professionals chair of the Wayne/Pike Farm Bureau. Both spoke of the need for those involved in all facets of agriculture to work together and help each other for the benefit of all who embrace the farm lifestyle.

The positive atmosphere in the room invited friendly conversation and a sharing of knowledge. New ideas were formed, business connections were made and the feeling that we’re all in this together prevailed.

More of these events are planned for the future. For updates or more information follow www.thecooperageproject.org and www.pfb.com/wayne-pike.

For when Meals on Wheels can’t get through


MONTICELLO, NY — Some of our seniors rely on Meals on Wheels. But what happens when the driver can’t get through?

The Office for the Aging and Cornell Cooperative Extension are asking for donations of canned or boxed food that will keep senior hunger at bay.

They need food in small cans (especially with a pull tab), healthy cereals or snacks, cookies, oatmeal, peanut butter, raisins, bottled water and juice boxes. Other donations are welcome too. Donations can be brought to the Office for the Aging, the county government center, or CCE in Liberty.

Call the Office for the Aging at 845/807-0241 or Cornell Cooperative at 845/292-6180 with questions.
