A roundup of FFA news for the week of June 30, 2011:


CHILLICOTHE, Ohio — During the week of June 6-10 eight members of the Zane Trace FFA chapter attended summer camp at FFA Camp Muskingum near Carrollton, Ohio. The theme for this year’s camp was Unlock the Mystery and campers were encouraged to solve a fictional murder mystery.

During the camp FFA members participated in leadership sessions with past Ohio FFA state officers, competed in sports tournaments, debated the benefits and drawbacks of organic farming and learned conservation practices related to wildlife, water quality and forestry.

Members also raised money for Children’s Hospital through the annual camp Pie In the Eye competition.

The banquet was held in the Zane Trace Cafetorium June 11 and included a group of more than 200 guests. FFA members helped the caterer serve meals and clean up.
