Clear Fork FFA takes part in annual Belleville Street Fair

This year marked the 164th year of Bellville’s annual Street Fair. FFA members were hard at work all week to prepare the animal tents and make sure that all of the shows ran smoothly. On Monday members set up all of the animal tents to prepare for Tuesday when the animals would be moved into their temporary homes. Wednesday and Thursday was packed full of livestock shows that went very well thanks to the barn supervisors and other helpful members. Many of the members did very well showing their animals and won some awards. Brent Ball raised the scholarship hog this year and won first in his showmanship class. Shelby Tedrow had Grand Champion ducks, while Ellyse Shafer had Reserve Champion ducks. This year we also had two  ladies from the FFA participate in the fair queen contest; Jenna Mascazinni and Cheyenne Smith-Raines. Congratulations to Cheyenne on getting 2nd runner up and representing Clear Fork FFA. The Bellville Street Fair was a huge success this year for not only the members, but the community as well. We look forward to many more in the future.

This years theme for the vegetable table was “The Real Hunger Games.” The table was split into two different parts. The first part stated facts about countries living in poverty, foods they would eat, and the average portion size. Then the second side of the table represented us and all of the food and resources we have. The motive behind the table was that people would see how lucky they are and appreciate the resources they have. This was yet another prize winning table for the FFA.
