UNIQUE WORD ART: Janel van Dongen celebrates the completion of her unique word art made of hay bales. The eight-year-old came up with the idea to spell out “Springford Farm” using hay bales as a way to promote the on-farm store owned and operated by her grandparents Colin and Diane Springford and uncle Ross Springford. She later shortened it to simply “Farm” after realizing just how many bales it would take to spell the full name.
