Teen Exchange: The teen exchange trip was held on June 8 and 9. Despite the wet weather we had, it was a success.

Activities included touring the fairgrounds, sharing information, visiting the Tiffin Glass Museum, touring Price Family Show Pigs, visiting Seneca Caverns, and staying overnight at Camp Glen with team building activities on Saturday. VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT POULTRY There has been some misinformation about poultry this year and what all needs Pullorum tested. If you are taking Pullets and you got them from a hatchery and have their hatch papers they do not need tested. If you do not have hatch papers, testing will be available outside the poultry barn the day of weigh in- Sunday, July 22. You do not have to get this done prior to the fair. Booth- Jr. Leadership is planning on implementing a positivity board in their booth at the fair this year. Anyone can come through and take a message of positivity that they might need. Everyone needs a pick- me up sometimes. If you are taking Breeding Turkeys, since they are over a

year old they do need blood tested and testing can be done with Dr. Pursell. If you are taking Market Turkeys and have their hatch papers you do not need to get them tested. At the last meeting in May, Jr. Leadership welcomed Bonnie Tiell from the Athletics Department at Tiffin University in their Sports Management. Bonnie is well vested with Myers Briggs and was the guest speaker as the teens identified and found out more about themselves and their leadership styles.
