Third Grade students from all over the county enjoyed a field trip to the Halifax County Fairgrounds on October 3rd, 4th, and 5th.  Each year select organizations in the County pull together an awesome hands-on event known as Farm Animal Field Day for the students to enjoy.  This year was no exception.  Meadville students would like to send a big shout out to the following organizations for planning the event:  Halifax County Farm Bureau, Halifax County Farm Bureau Women's Committee, Halifax County Extension Office, Halifax County 4-H, Master Gardeners, Ag Natural Resource Agents, Halifax Co. Soil and Water, and NRCS of Halifax, Halifax Co. Bee Keepers Association, the Dept. of Forestry and forestry Agents, Halifax office of VA State Police, and the Halifax County Fair.  Each year the students and teachers return to the schools with lots of facts and interesting stories to tell.  Thank you to one and all!
