The 2013-2014 school year is off to a great start for the Delta FFA Chapter. FFA members expect great things for the rest of this year.
In June, 14 members travelled to the 85th Colorado FFA State Convention where the theme was "Exceed." Members spent time networking, participating in workshops, and learning how to be better leaders in their community. Everyone learned many new ideas.
In August, members attended the Delta County Fair, where they received numerous awards and ribbons. The Delta FFA officers then held an Icebreaker meeting for the first-year members. This was a fun event with an ice cream social and games.
Delta FFA members planned to host an irrigation simulator on Saturday, Sept. 28, at Confluence Park as part of the BELA 5k event. Community members could learn how to set siphon tubes and some basic irrigation principles.
On Friday, Oct. 4, the Delta FFA Chapter will host the annual Homecoming Tailgate Party at Delta High School prior to the football game. For $5, you can get chili, hamburgers, hot dogs, and chips. All of the money raised will go to help eight Delta FFA members attend the National FFA Convention in Louisville, Ky., at the end of October.
Finally, the Delta FFA officers for 2013-2014 are: Kelsie Hartman, president; Aspen Spiker, vice president; Hadassa Graham, secretary; Derrek Johnson, treasurer; Cade Lugard, reporter; and Taylor Jensen, sentinel. We are looking forward to many fun events as the school year continues.blog comments powered by Disqus
