WEST SALEM, Ohio — The Northwestern FFA officers held their yearly retreat to plan for the upcoming year.

Becca Harbaugh, Chloe Raff, Blake Coffman, Adam Miley, Damon Johnson, Zach Berry, Rachelle Howman, Emily Flinn, Shannon Garrison, Brittney Bunyak, Victoria Devore, Faith Hudson, and Kierstyn Wood all attended this event.

The members met at the high school beforehand and traveled to the Adopt-A-Highway site on state Route 302. The members went out and picked up litter along the road while having fun at the same time.

Once Adopt-A-Highway was finished, the officers traveled down to Mohican Adventures campground for a day of fun and team building. The advisors, Dan Fulk and Heather Tegtmeier, took the members sightseeing around the area to places such as the Mohican fire tower, the covered bridge, and hiking to Lyon Falls and the Little Falls.

Other activities the members participated in were canoeing, volleyball, and cooking over the campfire for supper. Around the campfire that night, the officers created goals for the chapter for the upcoming year, as well as discussed new activity ideas to get more members involved.
