From the Director
As summer has arrived, the Spring lambs graze the property while the Spring goats test every foot of fence for an escape route. Lola, the 650 pound sow, rules the hog pen while the boar named Floyd stays out of her way. Drumm’s donkey Sweet Pea is president of the pastures while Aries, a Great Pyrenees, is the north side guard. And Monkey the farm cat patrols her barn and campus throughout the day and night.
Drumm Farm bustles with activity as our young people participate in the care and of the animals and the planting of the crops, a vision set forth a century ago by Andrew Drumm. On October 12th, Drumm Farm will celebrate 100 years of serving children with an amazing, family friendly Hoedown on our campus. Sweet Pea and Monkey will vie to be the unofficial event marshal while visitors enjoy live music, hayrides, horseback riding, carnival activities, crafts and more. There will be special dedications, the release of a Drumm biography, and the official unveiling of a Drumm monument.
Drumm is so thankful for the incredible support of so many. That support has helped us grow our capacity to serve more kids, better. Today more than 70 young people at a time are provided housing, counseling services, educational support, and life skills. That number will grow to 80 this fall, but our core business has always been about hope and love and opportunity.
So the young people along with Lola, Floyd, Sweet Pea, Aries and Monkey would love to have you join us in October for the Drumm Century Celebration Hoedown! And who knows, you might get recruited to chase a runaway goat.
Thanks for being a part of the Drumm family, Brad
