Emily Glover, Managing Editor

The Future Farmers of America will be hosting the first annual spring festival which will be held on May 25 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. This fundraiser is a family event that will entail a petting zoo, face painting, games, food, and plenty more worthy activities. Entry tickets will be sold for $3 at Bear Park where the event will take place. However, children under the age of five will be free and donations are always welcome.

All proceeds will go directly towards the FFA’s mission of promoting premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through Agriculture Education. By this including their 91st Texas State Convention, an annual banquet, and many other activities hosted and invested by the FFA in devotion to the future of students’ careers.

“We hope to build a stronger financial standing in this festival to support more activities in FFA,” FFA President Peyton Ellis said.

The FFA organization is hoping to reach their goal of gaining future members and attracting public interest through this festivity. The group is thrilled and very much looking forward into seeing the community come out and support their local FFA chapter.

“After so much dedication from members and volunteers, we hope to create a new tradition of students, families, and the community who are more involved and educated in FFA,” treasurer Sarah Bates said.
