The Eden Valley Watkins FFA chapter would like to thank everyone who purchased fruit, meat, and cheese this year. We had a very successful sale of more than $30,000 worth of product. Twelve pallets of fruit arrived Thursday, Dec. 5, and was unloaded by 42 FFA members. The top three sales people this year were Dillon Blonigen, Mandy Molitor, and Arnie Gruenes. Thanks again for your continued support of the Eden Valley Watkins FFA chapter.

Santa was very busy this past weekend, and the jolly guy has a few more local stops before he heads back to the North Pole to make final preparations for
Saturday, Dec. 7, he met with lots of good boys and girls at Eden Valley-Watkins High School. The youngest was probably Knisley Bischof (8 weeks) who came with her sister Kynlee (22 mos.); their parents are Chris and Amy Bischof of Eden Valley. There were hotdogs and chips, and lots of activities like cookie decorating. The event was sponsored by Community Ed., and Tri-M students helped with projects, and Kaitlyn Gruber and Dyani Acosts were Santa’s elves. Because of the cold, the horse-drawn trolley was cancelled.
On Wednesday, Nov. 13, the EV-W IMPACT group created some sweet mustaches and did the freeze dance.
We had a groovy mustachio experience! Submitted photo.
