FFA Week a Success in 2013!

Sarah Warren

Every year during the week of George Washington’s birthday, the National FFA Association celebrates FFA Week. This is a week of advocacy, fun and service for chapters across the country. Here in Jessamine County, we had a phenomenal week packed full of FFAmily Fun! The chapter attended Bethel Christian Church on Sunday, followed by a tasty lunch at Fiesta Mexico. Monday was a day off, so the members hit the alley for a bowling night at Strike Zones, which pulled a huge crowd. Tuesday was Muddy Truck and Camo day, showing how we get down and dirty for our work in agriculture; this was followed by a movie night at JCTC Tuesday night. Wednesday was Blue and Gold Spirit day, with a third block meeting, in which the chapter conducted a Harlem Shake video! Wednesday night was local speaking night in which it was decided who would advance on to Regional competitions. Thursday was Official Dress day, as we cooked up a teacher appreciation breakfast that morning, followed by a community sponsor banquet at lunch. After school Thursday we loosened up and hit the court for a Fun Night here in the West High gym. The advisors upheld their name and won the advisor/student 3-on-3 basketball game. Friday was Dress like an Advisor Day to show our appreciation for the Ag teachers who give so much, and Saturday we hosted a fundraising cookout at Tractor Supply. Thank you to all who support the FFA members and our organization. We had a great week and are super pumped for the remainder of the year!
