Henley FFA Chapter celebrates 2014 National FFA Week, Feb. 15-22

INDIANAPOLIS- The Henley FFA Chapter in Klamath Falls, Oregon will celebrate National FFA

Week, Feb. 15-22. This year’s theme is ‘Ignite’ and it embraces more than 80 years of FFA traditions

while looking forward to the organization’s future. More than half a million members will participate

in National FFA Week activities at local, state and national levels. These members have a passion for

agriculture.

Designated as National FFA Week in 1947, the week of George Washington’s birthday is FFA Week,

and runs from Saturday to Saturday. FFA Week gives FFA members an opportunity to educate the public

about agriculture. During the week, chapters conduct a variety of activities to help others in their school

and community learn about FFA and agricultural education. The Henley FFA Chapter will celebrate

National FFA Week by participating in the following activities:

• 2/15: Donkey Basketball at 6 p.m. at Henley Middle School Gym

• 2/18 Phoenix vs. Henley Basketball (the chapter will be doing face painting and have a FFA cheer

section at the game)

• 2/19 Chapter meeting at 6 p.m. at Henley High School Cafeteria

• 2/20 District Leadership Contest & Game Night at Henley High School in Ag room at 6 p.m.

• 2/21 Ice Skating at Bill Collier Ice Arena at 7 p.m.

Also at Henley High, during the week there will be dress up days and a weeklong trivia game with daily

rewards for participating students. Today’s FFA members are the innovators and leaders of tomorrow.

Through agricultural and hands-on learning, they are preparing for more than 300 career opportunities in

the food, fiber and natural resources industry.

National FFA Week is sponsored by Tractor Supply Company as a special project of the National FFA

Foundation.
