Never a dull moment for busy FFA
While some clubs start the school year slowly, FFA hits the ground running. September means the annual West Lampeter Fair. Between showing animals, working the sausage stand, and competing in contests everyone stayed busy at the Fair. Overall the fair was another success.

Many people think that FFA members can relax a little now that the fair is over, but that is not the case.
October is another month full of events. The fruit sale has started up again and all members are encouraged to sell as much as possible. Other upcoming events included Greenhand Night on October 15. All first year members from our chapter and other FFA chapters are invited. Members will participate in games and stations to learn more about the FFA.

Six members including Matt Harnish, Mark Mellinger, Connor Ranck, Donovan Weaver, Jesse Diller and Sarah Hess will be traveling to National Convention during the last week in October.
Be on the lookout for more information on FFA participation in the Halloween Parade and tree planting.
