School News – December 24

Annual fundraisers by the Hope FFA generated about $7,000 total, some of which to be used to purchase Christmas gifts for a family in need, and most to sustain the chapter for the future.

The annual seed sale auction was conducted Dec. 10 by chapter officers and the seed sale committee. The annual cupcake drive was held in conjunction with the annual seed auction.
