GRIDLEY FFA UPDATE
Let the Sparks Fly
Yet Another Successful Drive Thru
On the 17th of October 2013, the Gridley FFA Chapter held their annual Drive Thru BBQ. This year was another year that was successful, due to all the help and donations we had. We’d like to start off by thanking everyone in the community for their donations and time, and our FFA members for helping out with all the set up, and deserts, our advisors Mathew Reed, Niki Flosi, and Nick Dreesman were a huge help as well. I would like to address, Save More, Tower Mart, and Winco for supplying the bread, the Kossow family for the wood, S &L meats for our ribs, and Pro Pacific for the salad. Also we the Gridley FFA chapter would like to thank UPS, for the printing of our Drive Thru BBQ tickets.
Thank you all for making this year’s fundraiser another success.
Local Opening & Closing Contest
Gridley FFA’s first local contest for Opening and Closing was a huge success. Our judges showed up prepared and happy to assist Gridley FFA. This event prepares our teams for the sectional contest at Colusa Field Day. The groups that went had almost everyone show up dressed to do their part. Our officer team gave an example to the judges of how things should be, and with only one mistake they wowed the judges. Judges who had never been introduced to Opening and Closing judged the three novice teams. Judges with experience in Opening and Closing judged the six advanced teams. Continuing to Colusa for the advanced team is Teresa Levya as President, Ariel Ingram as Vice President, Sandra Dreesmann as Secretary, Macy Thomas as Treasurer, Alexis Taylor as Reporter, and Jennifer Goldfarb as Sentinel. Representing the novice-gold team is Celeste McConnell as President, Jarred Kopp as Vice President, Maribel Gomez as Secretary, Judith Rosales as Treasurer, Lily Martinez as Reporter, and Carlos Jauregui as Sentinel. Representing the novice-blue team is Chris Bowers as President, Colton Naylor as Vice President, Geydi as Secretary, Cheyann Huff as treasurer, Julia Hall as Reporter, and Jacob Holland as Sentinel.
