The Windsor FFA Chapter could not be more a-buzz! This past week Windsor High School’s Ag Department celebrated its annual “FFA Week”.
On Monday, January 28th, the agriculture students all wore blue and gold to advertise the colors of our organization. On Tuesday the 29th it was “Drive your agricultural vehicle to school day” where the students drove their tractors, trucks, and other decorated vehicles to the school! On Wednesday the 30th the students gathered at 5:30 AM to cook a “thank-you” breakfast for the entire staff at WHS. Students also gathered together at the school that night and held their annual game night where everyone brought board games and cards to enjoy the night with all of their friends in the FFA Chapter. On Thursday the 31st the students gathered in the Ag Shop for the first every “Movie Night”. And then to top it all off, on Friday, February 1st, the students all wore their Windsor FFA shirts to show our pride (shirt design made by WHS FFA Chapter member Rachel Winter).
While winding down from the FFA Week festivities, the officer team and advisors are already planning the Hired Hand Auction, which is set for March 6th, 2013 at 5:30 pm in the WHS Auxiliary Gym. At this event, hundreds of Windsor and Severance citizens come together to purchase the labor of all of the FFA students. Once purchased, the students donate eight hours of labor for the buyer, whether it is babysitting or mowing their lawn. Food will also be served at this event. Mark your Calendars- The Hired Hand Auction will be held on March 6th, please come and join us and help support your WHS FFA!
