Life in and around the "Block and Bridle Barnyard" is about community. Through group activities and teamwork, Block and Bridle members build friendships, share in fellowship, and develop a sense of purpose while representing animal agriculture. "Around-the-Barnyard" will allow chapters to share their success stories about service projects, educational events, fundraising opportunities, individual achievements, and professional development projects they perform.
