MEATS AND SWEETS FUNDRAISER!!

I wanted to make you all aware of the fundraisers that were passes out yesterday! With Mr. Love out this week, I sent fundraisers to pass out to McMillen and Williams to your school yesterday and they will be passed out today!.

The fundraisers are due no later than Friday October 14th. We sell the meats from Seitz fundraising and the sweets from Fresh County.

Please remember that you need 75 points to compete on an LDE and 125 points to compete on a CDE in the spring. You must have all 200 points to qualify for the Booster Club’s senior scholarship.



  • 10 points will be given to those who work the October 28th concession stand at Kimbrough Stadium for the FFA Booster Club.
  • 5 points will be given to those who work the teacher breakfast on October 10th at PESH. Please be here at 7:30am and bring an electric skillet if you can!
  • 5 points a t-shirt will be given to those who turn in shirt orders after their own shirt is purchased.
  • 4 points per item will be given for the meats and sweets fundraiser. (selling 16 items and working the concession stand will make you enough points for LDEs this fall.)


There will be another opportunity to get points for the spring as there will be a Booster Club fundraiser everyone will participate in. Please remember that without your support in selling fundraisers, our program cannot attend competitions, field trips, conventions, provide scholarships, and an end of the year banquet.
