(OLNEY/NEWTON) This is National FFA Week across the country, a time that all FFA Chapters take time to celebrate what FFA is all about. All local, state, and national FFA members are hosting activities to raise awareness about the role the National FFA Organization plays in the development of agriculture’s future leaders and the importance of agricultural education. We hope you’ll join us as we recognize all of our area FFA Chapters, their members, their sponsors, and their alumni groups that spend countless hours making agriculture education and FFA what it is in Richland, Jasper, and all area surrounding counties.
(OLNEY) The Olney FFA Chapter began FFA Week activities last week with a Proclamation Signing by Olney Mayor Mark Lambird at the Olney City Hall last Friday afternoon. The Olney FFA members then took part in a Dodgeball Night at Britton’s Bullpen in Olney last Friday night. FFA members attended a special FFA Church service yesterday morning followed by a meeting at Richland County High School. Coming up tonight, the Olney FFA Chapter will tour both the Richland County Jail and the Richland County Courthouse, followed by a Chapter Meeting tonight in the 3rd Floor Court Room. With school resuming tomorrow, Tuesday will be Tacky Tourist Dress Day, plus a 5th Block All School Assembly at RCHS. Wednesday is Official Dress / Blue and Gold Dress Day with the FFA Cookout from 11:30 to 1:00 at RCHS. Thursday is Mismatch Dress Day with the FFA Petting Zoo from 8:00 to 2:30. Friday is Western / Flannel Dress Day with the RCHS Teacher Appreciation Breakfast from 7:20 to 8:00 in the morning and the Barnyard Dance at RCHS Veteran’s Hall from 7:00 to 10:00 that night. To wrap things up Saturday, the FFA members will help with the “Bowl for Kid’s Sake” fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Richland County. That’s all during the 2018 National FFA Week observance by the Olney FFA Chapter at RCHS.
