Instead of having May flowers and light showers, members of the Delta High School FFA Chapter decided to host their annual oyster fry and member auction in the colors of fall and chilled winds.
Under the direction of Delta FFA Alumni organization to put less pressure on their supporters, they moved this to the fall. With this, Delta FFA Chapter saw an uprising in their sales and community involvement.
Delta FFA Chapter holds this event to raise money for the chapter and is a long-standing tradition in Colorado to show leadership and provide strong labor for the community.
It's not just the kids, but Kendal Butterfield, ag teacher, does this for the community. A lot of the parents help out and donate additional time into Delta's chapter as well.
Logan Cooper, the starter of a new tradition in the Delta FFA Chapter, made a wooden chair to be sold at the auction to also help raise money. Mrs. Butterfield said, "Cooper was very excited to show off his skills when I asked him."
Cooper on the other hand, said, "It's just something she asked me to do, another task that she wanted me to take on."
"As the night went on, supporters never stopped laughing and enjoying our marvelous food," said Hunter St. Clair.
A representative from Allen Community college who is also the livestock judging coach flew in from Kansas. His sole purpose was to come and support the Delta FFA Chapter and talk to some of Delta's members about attending college.
The Delta community came out full force to help the Delta FFA Chapter.
