Cottondale FFA Holds FFA Week Activities

The Cottondale FFA Chapter held its annual activities for FFA Week during the week of February 17 through February 23, 2020. This chapter held FFA week a week earlier than National FFA Week due to time conflicts.

The chapter hosted many activities to get their members involved. Throughout the month, the chapter held a food drive to collect food from students, after collecting the canned food, the chapter donated it to the Chipola Ministries. The chapter delivered almost 2,000 pounds of canned food to the Chipola Ministries. On Monday, Jackson County Forester, Barry Stafford, came out to Cottondale High School assist the chapter in planting new trees around the school. Tuesday, members arrived at school well before school started to cook breakfast for the faculty and staff of Cottondale Elementary and High Schools. On Wednesday, the chapter hosted an FFA Spirit day, which allowed all FFA members to wear their FFA T-shirts to school. On Thursday, the chapter hosted a CDE/LDE fair during lunch for high school and middle school students. The CDE fair had a representative from each competition the chapter is involved with who would explain to interested students what the competition was and how they can get involved. And on Friday, the chapter took on their officer team, as well as other members to assist at the Panama City Rescue Mission. The members were informed on programs that the mission provides for the people in need. They also helped with other various tasks the Rescue Mission staff had for them. On Sunday, the chapter attended the Cottondale First Baptist Church for their morning service to let the congregation know what the chapter had been up to that week. A huge thank you goes out to all of the organizations and people that made this week possible.
