During the month of September, the North Hopkins FFA Chapter was relatively busy with several projects.
After a successful Kick-off to start the year, the chapter held a community wide collection for items to take to the Hurricane Harvey victims. To help get students involved, an ice cream party was promised to the class that could collect the most items. Out of highschool and junior high, the junior class won with 152 items. For the elementary classes, Pre-k won with 147 items. Altogether, the North Hopkins ISD donated a total of 1,005 items.
In an effort to involve the community, the North Hopkins chapter officers set up a donation drive at the Tractor Supply in Sulphur Springs. 40 bags of assorted animal feed was donated and other various items such as feed and water buckets, vet wrap, shavings, hay, flashlights, batteries, water and gloves. All of the items were then added to the other donations collected by all of the FFA chapters in the district. Everything was loaded onto a trailer and hauled to check-point to be dispersed to those in need.
As the month of October begins, the chapter officers will be planning a meeting on October 25 for all members of our chapter. Being so close to Halloween, there will be a costume contest that all members of North Hopkins FFA are welcome to enter.
We hope that this month proves to be as productive and successful as the last. We will continue to keep you updated on anything recent or coming up soon. Thank you for your involvement and support!
