National FFA Week
Every year FFA members across the nation celebrate National FFA Week, this year FFA week is February 18th through the 21st. What is National FFA Week you may ask? National FFA Week is an opportunity for FFA members, alumni and sponsors to advocate for agricultural education and FFA. It’s a time to share with local, state and national audiences what FFA is and the impact it has on its members every day. This year the theme for National FFA week is “Ignite the flame” and that is what Clovis FFA is trying to accomplish. Why is agriculture so important? Agriculture is very important as it the backbone to a stable nation. Agriculture is the largest sector that provides food and employment to many people, especially around Clovis, California. Clovis FFA at the McFarlane-Coffman Agriculture Center is an excellent example of why FFA is important. The Clovis FFA Chapter has 600 active FFA members that spend their time advocating for Agriculture. The Clovis Agriculture Department grows local crops to sell to the community at the Farmers Market in Old Town Clovis, and provides over a hundred different livestock projects that are sold at the Big Fresno Fair. Each year FFA isn’t just selling crops and animals, Clovis FFA has several different Career Development Teams in which students compete throughout California at different University’s wearing their Clovis FFA Jacket. Looking forward to FFA week, the Clovis FFA Officers and Advisors are preparing to advocate for agriculture and the FFA and show the importance of Agriculture around Clovis East High School. Clovis FFA is igniting their passion for agriculture and doing this by having daily activities and dress up days during FFA Week to get FFA members more involved. The dress up days and activities to allow FFA members to get FFA credit for their Agriculture classes and the FFA. The dress up days include; Blue Jean Tuesday, Western Wednesday, Go Green with AG Day, and FFA Spirit Day. The Lunch time activities are; Pie Eating contest, Aggie Relay, Dodge ball, and the week will end with a hot dog lunch and awards on Friday.
The Clovis FFA Booster Club is also hosting The Blowout Booster BBQ on Saturday February 22nd at the Clovis Rodeo Hall. This BBQ is for people 21 or older and will be serving a delicious Tri-Tip dinner. There will also be a live and silent auction, live band, dancing, and loads of fun. Tickets are $30.00 ahead of time and $45.00 at the door. If you are interested in attending please call 917-0712 or contact the Clovis East high School Ag Staff.
