The Eden Valley-Watkins FFA chapter has been actively participating in various events. We had two meetings in September. Students signed up for FFA contests, practices, conventions, and Homecoming events.
Chapter members also attended a field day at Steve Schmitt’s farm. The National Syngenta FFA Foundation Rising Sun award was presented. Schmitt Farms Seed Division LLC recognized Eden Valley Watkins FFA chapter with a check for $200.
Six chapter officers went to Prairie Woods Environmental Learning Center Wednesday,
Sept. 25, for the Region 5 Chapter Leadership Conference. Seventh- eighth- and ninth-graders attended Greenhands in the Spotlight. This event exposes the younger members to FFA opportunities and promotes teambuilding skills.
The FFA chapter was also busy during Homecoming week. We roasted a hog and served more than 200 pulled-pork sandwiches at the volleyball and football games. We also decorated a float
and handed out candy during the parade. We had 32 members participate in the Homecoming parade this year.
