FFA has had a busy September

-A A +A

LaRue County FFA had a very eventful month in September. We started off our month by sending two of our chapter officers, Cole Holt and Clay Rogers, to the Kentucky Leadership Training Center for “Rising Sun,” a leadership conference. On September 16, we had around 40 members, parents, and advisors, help to beautify our county through the Trash for Cash program. It gave us an opportunity to see parts of the county we may not have gotten to see before and also gave us a chance to see how awful people treat our county.

Our FFA chapter has just this year started a Middle School Ag Club. Our September meeting was held on September 19 and was centered on the idea of leadership. We played games with the sixth, seventh, and eighth graders to teach them how to be good leaders and talked to them about what it meant to be a good leader.

On September 28, we hosted our annual Ag Awareness day for the eighth graders to get them excited about Ag and FFA as well as high school in general. We had around 16 stations that included a large and small animal station, a station with some of the main things we do, an FFA booth featuring state president Martin Williams, and an ATV, Farm equipment, and lawn mower safety station.

Last month was a great time to show the younger kids, and the community what we are all about. Thanks to everyone who helped to make this an eventful and successful month.
