The Suffield FFA will be holding its annual FFA Holiday Sale from November 29–December 2 (8 a.m.-6 p.m.) and on Saturday, December 3 (10 a.m.-1 p.m.) in the Large Animal Facility of Suffield High School. Students work to organize the sale, take custom orders and manage the production and sale floor throughout the week. This year, Lilly Butler (11th grade) and Travis Brown (10th grade) have served as the chair and vice chair in charge of organizing the event. The funds raised by this sale go towards helping students attend various leadership conferences, field trips and other program activities. Items sold include double faced balsam wreaths of various sizes, kissing balls, cemetery boxes, door swags, poinsettias and the ever-popular birch reindeer constructed in our shop. If you would like to place an order, feel free to call our agriscience office at (860) 668-3817 or come visit the students during the sale.
Additionally, on December 20, the Suffield Agriscience program will be holding its Forever Blue Celebration to honor graduate Brooke Tillotson for earning the highest degree in the National FFA Organization, the American FFA Degree. Only about 1% of all FFA members earn this degree, as candidates need 2,500 hours of Supervised Agricultural Experience, 50 hours of community service, and involvement with FFA on the local, state and national levels. Congratulations, Brooke!
Lastly, join us on January 26 from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. to listen to seniors from the Agriscience program share their Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) projects in the form of a Capstone Achievement Presentation. Each agriscience senior creates a 15-minute presentation about all four years of their SAE and agriscience experience. They present it to students, teachers, families, friends and the public. Everyone is encouraged to attend this wonderful evening full of reflection and new beginnings.
