Christmas Card Project at Mayland Community College

Mayland Community College has an exciting new student project that is helping spread holiday cheer through custom Christmas cards featuring artwork by students. The Life Works project is a nonprofit service learning venture operating as a simulated small business, allowing students with intellectual disabilities to design, create, produce, market, and sell their own handmade products in order to learn and practice valuable skills and move toward greater independence. A set of beautiful cards for Christmas is the latest product the group has put together.

Down on the Funny Farm

From Gooey Sorghum to the Perfect Christmas Tree – Funny Farm

This story brings many things to mind today. We were producing 300-400 gallons of pure sorghum syrup molasses when Farmer Clint was writing this story and this past year we only produced 140 gallons. The spring weather just did not agree with plant germination so we never got a good stand of sorghum. The process had changed from using a tobacco hatchet to a John Deere corn binder so we had an easier time with the harvesting. Clint would have enjoyed watching that process but it would never have done to let him run the machine! As I have matured more, I personally realize that some of the things that have taken place on the farm must change with my physical ability to do the manual labor that Clint never enjoyed but was always so willing to try and do.
