|FFA sponsors events|
FFA sponsored a food drive contest between classes at each Perkins County school for the holidays.
Over 1000 pounds of food was collected by students who brought canned food to school as donations to the local food pantry.
Winning at the elementary was the fourth grade; middle school winner was the seventh grade; and the freshmen won at the high school.
Each winning class was to receive a pizza party paid for by FFA, but each of them decided to forgo the party and have FFA donate $100 to the food pantry in their classes’ name.
Perkins County FFA along with the Chase County FFA will be hosting a “pink out” at the varsity basketball games in Imperial Thursday, Jan. 13.
T-shirts will be sold to raise money for each county’s health service foundation.Perkins County’s funds will support the new mammogram machine and supplies.
Sponsors are being sought and a free t-shirt will be given for each $50 donation.
Contact any FFA member or Mr. Babbitt to sponsor the project or to order a t-shirt.
FFA is planning its first Farmers Appreciation Banquet Sunday, Jan. 16, 5:30 p.m. at Perkins County High School. The evening’s events will include a potluck style meal and a speaker. All those planning to attend should RSVP to the school.
