The Washington Court House City School District held its inaugural Agriculture Day on Friday, Sept. 16. All students in the district were able to access the area and take part in the festivities.

At a designated area near Washington Middle School, students had the opportunity to interact with farm animals, make their own ice cream, speak with local farmers and other vendors, climb up inside of a tractor, and even try grilled corn on the cob.

High school students were given the option to volunteer to help chaperone students from Cherry Hill. When the buses arrived, over 50 high school students were waiting to help escort these students around.

Some students that are involved in 4-H were able to bring their animals in to show their peers. Other students made posters to show their peers what 4-H is like and what activities they can be involved in.

The event began around 8:30 a.m. and lasted over four hours, being deemed a big success, according to event organizers.

The plan within WCHCS moving forward is to increase involvement in 4-H, including starting local 4-H clubs that can hold meetings within city limits, continuing to educate their students in agriculture, and potentially adding an FFA chapter within the district.
