FFA to hold inaugural banquet


By Karrington Castro
Special to The PREVIEW
On May 20, the Pagosa Springs Future Farmers of America (FFA) will be hosting a banquet. This will be the first FFA banquet.
The banquet will take place at the PLPOA Clubhouse, 230 Port Ave., at 6 p.m. At the banquet, we will be doing officer initiation for our 2018-2019 leaders.
We will be having a brisket dinner with lots of other food, as well.
Anyone is welcome to come and have dinner with us. We’re selling presale tickets. If you would like to purchase a presale ticket, call Kerry at 903-4257 or Rebecca at 946-5628.
We will be putting on a silent auction at our banquet with lots of goodies to bid on. Come join us and support your local FFA group. We would greatly appreciate it.
My FFA group is starting a little program called Rent-A-Hand. If you need help around your house or wherever, we can help you. How this works is one person from my FFA group will get to help you out for around six hours and do the chores you have for them to do. You can donate money to us after we do the job.
This money will go toward all our FFA trips and expenses we have. This new program will be helping out the community, but also my FFA group. Some people just can’t do some things and we would love to help them out with those.
