FFA week just around the corner


Just recently, the Moffat County FFA chapter sent 12 of its members plus two advisers to the National Western Stock Show in Denver for a weekend. While there, they went to various livestock shows and a rodeo. Overall, they had an awesome time and hope to qualify to go again.

A few days before they left for the Stock Show, the chapter had a sledding party that was a big hit. The club went to the Cathy Cisar Park and had enjoyed an afternoon of sledding, snowmobiling and camaraderie.

The National FFA Week is coming up Feb. 17-20. On Feb. 17, from 8:30 am until 2 p.m. the Moffat County FFA chapter will sponsor its annual Children's Barnyard. Kindergarten classes in the Craig area have been invited to go to the high school Ag shop during this time to participate in a variety of hands-on projects. There will be farm animals to pet, tractors to ride, as well as seeds projects that will be distributed. Each class will receive a mini-farm project to take back to their classrooms and grow a mini-crop. On Feb. 18 the junior and senior officers will be getting up early to cook an Appreciation Breakfast for the teachers at the high school. On Thursday, Feb. 19, the chapter will be holding its annual Chili Supper/Service Sale in the high school Ag shop at 6:30 p.m. The FFA chapter would like to invite everyone to come enjoy a bowl of chili and bid on their favorite or hardest working FFA members for eight hours worth of work of your choosing. To close out the National FFA Week, the Officers will be going to the middle school to explaining what FFA is all about and enroll new members.

On a final note, the Moffat County FFA chapter would like to thank everyone that supported them with their annual Fruit Sale Drive.

This yearly fund-raiser helps offset expenses such as district and regional competitions, fees and educational materials. Without the support of our community, the Moffat County FFA chapter would not be as strong and committed to the continuance of education and betterment of its members or club. For further information or questions please call John Haddan or Rick Murr at the high school 824-7036.
