The Highland FFA Chapter keeps busy year round with fundraisers and various activities to keep members involved.
This year, the chapter has participated in many Career Development Events.
They also enjoy participating in volunteer events, such as the Latzer Homestead Harvest Days in September.
During the month of November, the chapter participated in a club food drive. Graduating classes competed against each other to collect the most food.
The chapter collected more than 200 canned goods and various toiletries. At the end of the month, the winning class received a pizza party, compliments of the FFA chapter.
With the help of the St. Gertrude's Parish donation of $300 worth of canned goods, the Highland FFA was able to make a contribution of 586 pounds of food to the local food pantry.
This month, the chapter will continue to help during the giving season by adopting four soldiers overseas and sending care packages.
(Editors note: The Highland FFA chapter is part of the national FFA organization, formerly called the Future Farmers of America.)
