Central A&M FFA brings busy summer to an end

The Central A&M FFA began their summer festivities with the Assumption Alumni Banquet, which was held on Saturday, May at St. Mary’s Parish Hall in Assumption. Lisa Parker, Rebekah Nash, Shelby Sloan, Matthew Hardeman, Madison Getz, Megan Zindel, Mo Hunter, Drake Grubb, Salena Sloan, and Bradi Branyan helped serve the attendees of the banquet and had a great time talking to everyone and serving.

Next, on the calendar was the Moweaqua Pow Wow on June 6-9. At the Pow Wow, the chapter brought something new this year instead of putt-putt golf.

Our new game was Ping-Pong Plinko. During the weekend, many members of the chapter helped with this.

Also, you might have seen the Central A&M Chapter’s float in the parade on Saturday.

Riding on the float was Madison Getz, Shelby Sloan, Sydney Meyer, Michaela Steele, Bradi Branyan, Drake Grubb, and Rebekah Nash. The float was constructed by many different members. The float received first place!

After the Moweaqua Pow Wow, the 2013-2014 officer team went to the 85th Illinois State Convention.

The convention was held at the Prairie Capital Convention Center in Springfield, IL. Along with Mrs. Burgener, nine members went including Megan Zindel, Matthew Hardeman, Drake Grubb, Del Adcock, Dean Adcock, Shelby Sloan, Abbey Burgener, Lisa Parker, and Rebekah Nash. During the convention, the attendees listened to many motivational speeches and made many memories.

Also, two members of the Central A&M FFA Chapter received their State FFA Degrees- Tyler Adcock and Kelsey Burgener. Brianna Harmon was recognized to receive her American FFA Degree, which is the highest degree that can be received.

All in all, the chapter did a great job this year, and the members had a great time.

After the State FFA Convention was finished, chapter members helped the Shelby County Pork Producers at the Shelby Electric Coop lunch. On Friday, June 14, Rebekah Nash, Shelby Sloan, Matthew Hardeman, Abbey Burgener, Mo Hunter, Salena Sloan, Gwyn Gilkeson, and Samantha Degenhardt helped serve the lunch and make drinks.
