FFA breakfast 6-8 a.m. Friday

By Nicole Major, Ledger staff writer | Feb 23, 2017

This week marked another National Future Farmers of America Week, which celebrates the birthday and agricultural legacy of the nation’s first president.

The weeklong tradition started in 1947 when the National FFA Board of Directors designated the week of President George Washington’s birthday as National FFA Week in recognition of his heritage as an agriculturist and farmer.

Just as other chapters around the country celebrated the week in high style, Fairfield High School’s FFA members were no different.

Throughout the week, FHS students showed their FFA spirit by donning their favorite agricultural college T-shirts, sporting camouflage or their FFA jackets. Wednesday, many FFA members drove tractors to school.

The celebration will conclude with the traditional FFA Pancake Breakfast.

Breakfast is from 6-8 a.m. Friday inside the FFA classroom. Students will serve pancakes, sausages and a beverage. Breakfast is free for FFA students, families and teachers. For more information, contact Courtney Taglauer at Courtney.taglauer@fairfieldsfuture.org.
