Are We Ready For Spring???

Future Farmers of America Week: Feb. 22 to 29---We salute you all—the power of that Blue Corduroy Jacket!! As we have said before—in 1928, 33 students from 18 states gathered in Kanas City, Mo. to form the Future Farmers of America (FFA). To the many young high school students out there, those involved in FFA, what lessons you learn and also give back to society. No better way to start a career knowing what you learn through FFA. What better way to travel in rural America and to the 270 members of the Chillicothe FFA Chapter and the other area school chapters, you are very much admired.
