December was another busy month for Pettisville FFA.
After placing second in the Fulton County Parliamentary Procedure Event, the team went to the Ohio FFA District 1 contest. A 12- minute meeting is conducted and a test taken.
While the team did not place in the top four, members said they still got better. Karsen Pursel served as chairman and Luke Van- DenBerghe was the secretary. Other members and alternates were Carson Bennett, Clara Damman, Leah Beck, Sam Haley, Emma Salmi and Nathan Rupp.
Five Pettisville FFA members volunteered at Fulton County Christmas Cheer, Monday, Dec. 6. They helped set up shelves, stock the store, and worked in the area that was being readied to serve others on the shopping days that followed. They enjoyed this activity and are glad they volunteered.
Fall Fruit Sales came to an end in late November. The items sold were delivered to the school Dec. 8, and members started delivering their fruit.
A quick sale challenge this year was to sell a minimum amount of ten sales with the overall goal of $600/member. Students reaching the quick sale challenge received cookies; students hitting $600 will get a pizza party.
The three top salesmen were Karsen Pursel, Sophie Sterken and Sam Haley. The chapter grossed more money than the past two or three years.
Monday, Dec. 13, was the monthly FFA meeting. Activities were tasting some fall fruit sale items, having a white elephant gift exchange, and having the opportunity to watch “Girl Named Tom” on “The Voice.” Members really enjoyed all these activities and considered it a fun night.
At least seven members are working on completing advanced degrees or officer books.–Emma Salmi, reporter
