FFA Newsletter
Officer Team puts in work over the summer
On June 10 all the officers got together at our advisors farm for a retreat. During this time the officers
planned out events for the upcoming school year.
They participated in many team building activities as
well. Canoeing, baseball, and a homemade slip-nslide were some of the fun bonding activities that
took place. Most of the activities you or your kids enjoy in FFA were products of the officers brains in
overdrive during these two days. They put in many
hours of hard work and we are looking forward to a
great year!
th

First FFA Meeting of the Year


The Smithville FFA came together on September
23rd during W.I.N. The officers introduced themselves and shared their involvement in the FFA and
our chapter. Our members enjoyed a snack provided
by the chapter while our officer team went through
introductions and reviewed the goals for the year
and some upcoming events. Our next meeting will
be on October 20th at Ramseyers at 7 P.M. We
hope to see you there!

On September 27th, 11 of our very own Greenhands


left from school to go to Greenhand Camp for 3 days.
When they came back we interviewed a few of them.
One of the favorite memories was Joe falling out of his
kayak into the lake. Many of the interviewees, including Joe Warren, would definitely go back because it
was a great experience. Many of the favorite activities
included, kayaking, the dance, and hanging out with
the state officers. Amanda Steiner said, Its the best
experience for Greenhands,

Fruit Sale starting soon!


Guess what time it is? That's right, FFA
fruit and nut sales are right around the
corner! It starts on Thursday, October
15th. This year during the fruit and nut
sale, we will be offering specialty
items. We have BBQ sauce in 3 different flavors, Sweet, Spicy and Island
BBQ. They are only $5 a bottle. Also
this year we will have Bauman Orchard
Apples in 5 Lb. bags, 20 and 40 Lb.
boxes. The varieties of apples that Bauman's will be offering are Red Delicious, Yellow Delicious, Jonagold, and
Mutsu. Thank you to Bauman Orchards
for your support of Smithville FFA and
being part of our Fruit Sales!
This year we will also be offering incentive days. These are special turn in
days that we have set dates for that if a
member sells $100 or more, they will
receive a treat! These incentive days
will be every Tuesday from the beginning to the end of fruit sales. The dates
of these days are October 20th, 27th,

and November 3rd, and 10th. The final


day of fruit sales and the final day to
turn in orders will be November 20th.
This year we will also continue to offer
FFA bucks. For every $100 sold the
member will receive $5 in FFA Bucks.
This money can be used to buy T-shirts
or help pay for trips. We are strongly
encouraging everyone to sell fruit. The
money we raise helps pay for scholarships and goes back to help pay for
our trips. We have set a goal to have
each student sell at least 12 boxes of
