A roundup of FFA news for the week of July 3, 2008


CHILLICOTHE, Ohio — Seven members of the Zane Trace FFA chapter recently attended the first session of summer FFA camp at Camp Muskingum June 9-13.

During their stay, they had the chance to try new sports such as archery, motor boating, kayaking, rock climbing and water polo.

The members also developed leadership skills by organizing camp chapter meetings and activities and by taking part in workshops led by past Ohio FFA officers. The students also learned important information about citizenship and service.

One evening, the entire camp took part in a “third world banquet” in which the dining hall was divided into first, second and third world tables by percentages and students and advisers alike learned what life would be like for people living in the “world” they were placed in.

Another service project the members took part in while at camp was the Children’s Hospital fundraiser. A “pie-in-the-eye” activity in which members donated money for the chance to throw a cream pie in the face of their adviser raised over $500, while an auction of FFA items brought in another $3,500 from chapter donations.
