FFA All the Way

Filed under: Festivals & Goin's On — lessie @ 2:08 am

Call me sentimental, but I stopped at the above vendor’s table at the Pendleton Fall Festival because of memories. I saw that blue scarf peppered with “FFA,” her associate’s jacket — and I knew. Back when I was familiar with the organization, it was still called FFA only as a nickname. The full name, Future Farmers of America, was used unrepentedly. Some of the best students — and people — come out of FFA, and I was charmed with the above gal’s enthusiasm for their cause. Pendleton High’s FFA was selling flats of flowers to sponsor their trip to the national convention.
