Chelsie Gleason, staff writer

FFA started the year off by doing its Greenhand initiation on Oct. 18, introducing what the club does. Officers explained to new members what being in FFA was all about and what the year will look like.

FFA will start fundraisers such as a clay shoot and a fudge sale in December to help their program. Throughout the year the group will do different service projects. These include Habitat for Humanity, Midland Co-Op, and Project Clean Up Greenwood. Toward the end of January, stockshow events and judging contests will start. Animals most shown include swine, lambs, goats, and steers.

“This year we are hoping to improve our judging contests and keeping everyone more involved,” FFA sponsor Shawna Braden said.
