FFA UPDATE - JAN 25, 2021

The Midland FFA is happy to announce that the Greenhand Banquet is finally being held after being cancelled due to high Covid rates last semester. The banquet will be held on January 31st at 4 pm. This time will be used to recognize our Greenhands participation in the FFA. They will receive the Greenhand Pin which is to be put on their official jackets. Second year members will also be recognized at the banquet with their Chapter Degrees. The Chapter Degree is the highest degree a chapter can bestow on its members.

The Midland FFA was able to continue our tradition of giving back and making We Care packages for our communities. With support from community members and your kind donations, we made approximately fifty packages for children and about twenty for adults. In each package for children we were able to include books, toys, and clothing items. For the adult packages, we included hygiene items, clothing, and other necessities. We spent one morning donating the packages to various food pantries in our district. We want to thank everyone who donated items, helped package them, and reached out to the advisors about obtaining these packages.

In December, we held a food drive for both the elementary and high schools. The food drive looked very different this year, but we still had a large amount of food donated. In the high school building, Ms. C and Ms. Kaftans’ seminar classes had the largest amount of food donated. The elementary school also participated in this event, and collected approximately eleven boxes with food. We would like to thank the students and community members for the generous donations. The food collected from this event was split up between the food pantries in our district.
