FFA Members Attend aMAZEing Meeting!

Over 250 Atwater High School FFA members attended the October FFA chapter meeting at the AHS Agriculture Department on October 27th with the 2016-2017 chapter officers performing the official FFA Opening and Closing Ceremonies.

The student run meeting provided the students with an opportunity to share and discuss the recent calendar events and activities. Students were updated about the recent fundraisers such as the Take-Out BBQ, Beautification Day, the FFA Opening and Closing Ceremonies Contest, and the upcoming annual Greenhand / Chapter Degree Ceremony. Upcoming information regarding the local and sectional FFA Project Competition taking place later this month and the Job Interview and Prepared Public Speaking contest was presented by the officer team.

The meeting was followed by a free BBQ for the students.  “It’s great to see the students get excited and involved,” said FFA Advisor and BBQ extraordinaire Sam Meredith. “I’m really proud of the students who have taken to become members of the elite Atwater FFA BBQ crew!”

The highlight of the evening was a trip to the Dell’ Osso Farm Corn Maze located in Lathrop, near Tracy.  Over 100 FFA members attended the trip in two charter buses.  “We went first class for a first class organization!” said FFA advisor Shelby West.  Students were challenged with a 20+ acre corn maze and enthusiastic over the extra activities including the haunted house and the pumpkin blasters.
