Some of the scholarship winners attended the Chester Delaware County Farm Bureau picnic on June 30.


The Chester Delaware County Farm Bureau returned to Nottingham County Park for their annual picnic on June 30. Members not only enjoyed beef brisket catered by Sabrena McMichael and Sandy Reyburn, but were able to meet and congratulate winners of the scholarship awards and Safety Contest.

Scholarships up to $1,000 are offered to students who live in Chester, Delaware and Philadelphia counties and who are planning further education to pursue a career in agriculture or an agriculture-related field. Scholarship checks for $1,000 were presented to the following:

Francis P. Barbour, Bishop Shanahan High School, who will attend Penn State University/Main Campus to study biomedical veterinary science;

Paul M. DeCarlo, Glenmoore, who is continuing studies in landscape contracting at Penn State University/Berks;

Lyndsi L. Gilbert, W.B.Saul High School, Philadelphia, who will attend Penn State University/Berks to study wildlife science;

Erin E. Klingensmith, New London Township, who will be continuing studies in dairy science and poultry science at Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University;

Tyler B. Lantz, Coatesville, who will continue his studies in agricultural business management at Penn State University/Berks;

Samantha M. Lawrence, Technical High School College/Pickering, Phoenixville, who will be embarking on equine and pre-veterinary studies at Delaware Valley College;

Charles Luke Trice, from Avon Grove High School, West Grove, who will be attending Penn State/Main Campus to study agricultural science.

Safety continues to be a concern, both on the farm and in homes. Children were asked to send in their coloring pages, posters and essays about safety for a contest. Five of the winners attended the picnic and were able to collect their prizes.
