The Cedaredge High School chapter of Future Farmers of America has scheduled a busy agenda of educational and promotional activities in observance of National FFA Week, Feb. 17-23.
On Sunday, Feb. 17, the chapter participated in its first ever Family Day event.
All members and their families are invited to join together at the New Hope Church on surface Creek Road at 10 a.m. for services.
Afterward there was an open house and cookout in the FFA shop at the school. The open house was a potluck with families asked to provide a side dish or dessert.
On Monday, the FFA members conducted another cookout at the school, and this one was for the entire student body, staff and administration.
On Tuesday, chapter members visited Cedaredge Elementary School for educational activities with students there as part of Ag in the Classroom Day.
Wednesday will be a Teacher Appreciation Day for the FFA Chapter. Teachers are offered a breakfast and an appreciation gift, and then another cookout is on tap, this one at the Middle School.
Thursday will be for expressing FFA pride, and chapter members are being asked to observe the official FFA dress code all day by wearing their complete official uniform outfits: slacks, shirts, and jackets. Thursday is also the member service auction fund raiser and popular oyster fry. The FFA'ers will auction themselves off for eight hours of service as a chapter fund-raising event (other options to participation in the auction program are being made available to parents interested in them). Chapter members are also selling tickets for the oyster fry.
On Friday, the Cedaredge chapter members will host a district FFA dance from 6-10 p.m.
A fitting grand finalé for the week's events will take place on Saturday as chapter members gather at the Cedaredge Rod and Gun Club range west of Cedaredge for some fun and spirit building friendly competition in the chapter trap shoot.
The CES Chapter officers are Rachael Latta, president; Austin Bower, vice president; Tory Day, secretary; Christina Fritchman, treasurer; Sam Worley, reporter; Alejandro Alejandre, sentinel; Alyssa Weeks, executive committee; Atlantis Campbell, junior vice; Kendra Pappen, junior secretary; Ryan Latta, junior reporter; and Ryan Bowen, junior executive committee.
