Litchfield Chapter of FBLA News & Updates The Litchfield Chapter of FBLA has been busy, as usual, working on our projects for this year! We submitted our entry for the SuperSweeps competition- a combination of projects showing our devotion to retaining and increasing our membership. We created flyers, invited new members, and informed everyone of all the amazing benefits FBLA can offer! Additionally, LPS FBLA conducted our annual FEED NE canned food drive/member taco supper at school and in the community. Our numbers look great and we’re very proud of the response we got from everyone in and around Litchfield this year. We’ll have concrete numbers for you in next month’s edition, so stay tuned!
