On Friday January 13th, 22 Crestview FFA members, traveling with students from the Clearfork FFA, started on their trip to the National Western Stock Show in Denver, Colorado. The trip to Denver and back took a total of eight days and over 3,000 miles across seven states. Along the way the group was able to tour the following : Tyson Meat Processing plant, the Anheuser Busch brewing company, Steamboat Arabia Museum, Flint Hills Discovery Center, Lloyd Waller Feedlot, Hornady Manufacturing, the University of Nebraska, Midwest Laboratories, Hawkeye Breeders, the John Deere Seeding Group as well as John Deere Harvester Works. Finally, the group made their last stop at Fair Oaks Farms in Fair Oaks, Indiana.
Every year, members of the Crestview FFA participate in the chapter’s annual fruit sale fundraiser. For three weeks, members of the community are given the opportunity to purchase several varieties of citrus fruit, apples, and barbecue sauce. Chapter sales expand all throughout Ashland as well as surrounding counties.
The week of December 12th students along with chapter advisor, Mr. Albright, organized and sorted through each box of fruit to ensure customers got the best quality fruit possible. Afterward, students were responsible for picking up and distributing their fruit. The annual fruit sale as well as the chapter’s chicken barbecue gives members the opportunity to earn themselves a spot on the group’s eight day trip to the National Western Stock Show in Denver, Colorado that takes place in January.
