Journal Writing Project: FFA


By Abigail Hanson

As many of you were probably in FFA or FHA, you may understand what goes into planning the events of the year. For those of you who don’t know, many hours go into planning the Miller Invitational, FFA Week, 4th Grade Farm Safety Day, the Annual FFA Banquet and many other smaller things. As the FFA President, I am in charge of much of the planning and can tell you first-hand that it isn’t an easy task. Lining up workers, set-up times, equipment, catering, a guest list, etc. is a lot of work and demands the support of many people.

With such a small FFA, all members are needed to put on our events. Whether we need someone to bring the sheep to the Miller Invitational or gates to the petting zoo, everyone must do his/her share for these events to run successfully. We also have to be able to multi-task for these events since we are such a small group of FFA members. This means that I may have to take pictures, serve food, and score judging cards all in one day, just to get through the day.

Throughout my FFA career I have held the office of Assistant Officer, Secretary and now President. All of these offices have included leadership, hard work and a lot of time and effort. I myself have not been able to do all of the planning and work alone! I have to give credit to all of the active members of the M-C FFA, parents, Mr. and Mrs. Larry Miller, Jerry Tesmer, FFA alumni, the students and staff at Mabel-Canton, and everyone else that has helped out. Every little thing helps since one pan of bars or a file from the computer can really make the difference between success and failure.

As the year comes to a close, we are planning the Annual FFA Banquet to thank our supporters and to recognize the accomplishments of the FFA members. Each year we give out awards to those most involved and also to those who helped sell the most fruit. We are proud to be able to run such a successful and rewarding FFA in our small town. I hope that it will continue in the years to come.
