Summer Recap 2017 by Sierra May... During the last few months members of the Crestview FFA had a busy summer. Starting off we had three members attend Camp Muskingum’s first session. Camp Muskingum, located in Carroll County Ohio, works to help members in FFA create friendships, promote leadership in members and help the campers grow as members in the FFA. Members, Leo Ringler, Allene Watson and Sierra May, came back reporting of all the fun they had at FFA camp. Camp Muskingum offered an array of different activities for the campers ranging from paintball, archery to even boating. The camp still continued to teach the members all while having lots of fun. During the rest of the summer numerous members in the chapter also attended the Richland County Fair. Many of the members placing in their separate classes. The chapter also hosted their summer picnic for the upcoming and current members in the chapter. The picnic offered a way for the new members to meet some people in the chapter.
Summer Picnic by Elizabeth Motter... On Tuesday, July 25, the Crestview FFA Chapter held their annual summer picnic to introduce new FFA members and their families to the Crestview FFA Chapter and provide a calendar of events for the next school year. Parents, current members and new members all participated in a potluck meal before all the evening's events. Mr. Albright addressed the parents and guardians about what FFA is and the hard work and dedication that is required of both to be a successful FFA member at home and in the classroom. Meanwhile the members played several games, most involving water balloons, with the FFA officer team and other FFA members. These activities allowed for upcoming members to meet current members and learn more about FFA. An FFA Alumni meeting followed where attendees could learn about the
activities and projects supported by the local FFA Alumni chapter.

The CHS Mass Production class was very busy last year working on staff/student projects. We made several items such as a buffet table, coffee table, acrylic pens, linen cabinet, night stands, jewelry boxes, hall tree, shoe rack/benches, rolling spice rack, and an expandable bench. The class raised over $2,900 and profited $1,700 for the industrial shop to use at a later date.
The 2017-18 Mass Production class this year has different type of plan. We are building projects to sell at the Music Boosters Craft Show in November and the Spring Art Show. Some of those projects include a gun cabinet, night stands, a game table, blanket chest, and a few other odds and ends. We look forward to seeing you at one of these events and maybe we will have that unique project you are looking for. We thank you for your support.
