We had some festive fun at a
cookie decorating party! We
relieved the stress from finals by decorating some delicious
cookies, listening to some festive
tunes, and having fun with our
fellow chapter members!
We had lots of fun at our own FFA
Thanksgiving when we got back from break! Great food, friends, and apple
cider made it one to remember as
members gathered around the table,
took pictures at our photobooth,
and remembered why they're
thankful to be in FFA.
Last week, 6 members of Salinas FFA traveled to Indiana to go to the 2018 National FFA Convention and Expo! Some highlights included learning how to make soy candles, getting new FFA gear at the huge expo, watching Donald Trump, and seeing our fellow Californian Luke O'Leary be the new FFA National President!
