Yesterday evening we had our 3rd annual Tractor Pull at the Chesebrough Farm. We had hundreds of people from our community come out to support our organization through our biggest fundraiser of the year. All of the proceeds go towards improving our CDE teams and our FFA chapter. We want to especially thank Bob and Donna Chesebrough for continuing to let use use their facilities and supporting the local FFA chapter. Thank you to all who were in attendance yesterday!
On, October 12-13, 7 FFA member from the Templeton FFA Chapter attended the Regional Leadership conference where over 275 other students, all involved in the FFA, united at the 2019 South Coast Region FFA, chapter officer Leadership conference in Hollister, California. The FFA is an organization that promotes premier leadership, personal growth, and career success, and this is exactly what everyone who attended this two-day event gained. At this annual event, students attended various workshops, which serve to encourage and motivate these leaders to return to their schools with a new outlook on life and a positive attitude with their new ideas.
October 10th-11th we had FFA State Treasurer Kayla Zalesny and FFA State Secretary Lindsey Swall visit our chapter! Our Officer team took them to witness the world champion Puffball game between the Juniors and Seniors on Wednesday. And on Thursday we got to witness them teach us about the road of life and how important it is to work hard! Thank you to all who went to their workshop and Kayla and Lindsey for visiting our chapter!
This months FFA meeting was extra festive! We listened to reports about both past and upcoming events. We got in the Halloween spirit by carving pumpkins and gave awards for the best overall, most creative, and most agricultural. Congratulations to our winners, and thank you to all who participated. We hope to see you next month at our Fall Banquet!
