Parent/Member FFA Meeting

It's fair season once again and local FFA members have been hard at work on constructing projects to enter into the GA National Fair. We are inviting all parents that would like to attend to come to our Parent/Member FFA meeting to help us prepare for the fair. We would like for all parents in attendance to judge projects and give us some feed back on our work. FFA members will benefit from the feed back on their projects and have the opportunity to take their parent's scores into consideration.
