Barn Fest success
The first-ever FFA Barn Fest benefitting the Angel Tree program was a huge success and raised nearly $1,500 for the charity. Shalley Boles' FFA Pride Time students planned and facilitated the entire event. Those who attended got to pet lambs, goats, pigs, cattle and rabbits, play games and activities and take pictures at the “Fall on the Farm” photo booth. They also learned more about the FFA program. With more than 600 in attendance, FFA plans to make this an annual event.
