The Fayette FFA Chapter was very busy during the Fulton County Fair in the past week. Not only did some of the members compete with their 4-H projects there was also many various activities the students participated in during the course of the fair.
Every year our chapter volunteers to work in the pork stand. This year we had 42 students sign up for a time shift and help make the sandwiches as well as serve them. This is always a great opportunity for the students to help out.
Each year the chapter participates in two Jr. Fair Day activities. These activities are straw stacking and the livestock judging contests. Nick Wyatt and Daniel Michael were on a team in the straw stacking contest. Demi Powers, Wade Burkholder, Cady Stockburger, Casen Burkholder, Cole Burkholder, Allison Cuff, Paige Keefer, Derric Blosser, Devin Blosser, Ethein Malchow participated in the livestock judging. The team of Cady, Wade, and Casen placed 3rd in the senior division and Derric, Devin, and Ethein placed 2nd in the junior division.
Though FFA members are encouraged to participate through 4-H we would still like to recognize those FFA members accomplishments at the fair.
