·        Mrs. Hyland would like to invite staff and students and your families to Breakfast on the Farm at her family farm at the corner of Manning Road and County Road 8 this coming Sunday morning.  The event is coordinated by Farm & Food Care Ontario and provides a unique opportunity for farmers and nonfarming Ontarians to have a conversation about food and farming. It gives you the chance to tour a farm and educate yourself about where your food comes from.  Various information booths will be set up to provide information about the agriculture industry and representatives from the University of Guelph and Ridgetown College will be on hand for those of you who may be considering that pathway. You will also be provided with a FREE  breakfast  - yes, FREE - consisting of pancakes, eggs and sausage if you pre-register for it at www.farmfoodcare.org before Thursday, Sept 17 (that's tomorrow!). More details can be found on the door of Room 236.  Breakfast is served between 9 and 11:30am.  The event runs until 1 pm.  Hope to see you there!
