On June 24th and 25th Eight members from the Colonel Crawford FFA chapter spent many hours cleaning up a flower bed at the Crawford County fair for community service. The large flower bed was decorated to support this years fair theme and was then judged along with all the other flower displays on the grounds. They would like to thank Mr. and Mrs. Johnson for their help, and Oberlander’s for their donation’s as well! They enjoyed helping out the fairgrounds.
On August 2nd nine Colonel Crawford/Pioneer FFA students, along with their teacher Krista Betti and her parents, worked in the Ohio State Fair Pork Booth. The Pork Booth is operated by the Ohio Pork Producers Association and allows any AG related club, business, or organization to come in and cook and serve food and drinks. The chapter worked in booth the indoor pavilion and outdoor trailer for the Pork Producers. Colonel Crawford FFA students made and served many pork dinners and sandwiches to visitors at the Ohio State Fair. Colonel Crawford FFA students have been working in the booth for the past nine years and enjoy the experience very much. The CC students enjoyed the food that was provided by the Ohio Pork Association in return for their work and would like to say a big thank you.
The FFA chapter had a picnic and trap shoot on August 13th. Twenty students and parents attended the event. The main focus of the night was to introduce upcoming freshman students to the chapter. All students were allowed to shoot rounds of clay pigeons provided. All had a fun and enjoyable evening and the Colonel Crawford FFA Chapter would like to thank the conservation league and Charlie Steele for donating time and clay pigeons and Brad Stuckman of Baker Brothers for donating shells. Thanks to all who participated.
