The auction will take place in the gym following the basketball games. This fundraising activity helps to fund the activities we participate in throughout the year. If not for the generosity of the community the students would have to pay for these activities themselves and this could potentially limit who is involved. Activites that the Litch- field FFA participates in throughout the year include Range Judging, Livestock Judging, Leadership Devel- opment Events (public speaking and junior high quiz bowl), Career Development Events (Ag Mechanics, Veterinary Science, Agriscience, Agronomy, Natural Resources, Welding), State FFA Convention and oth- er leadership activities. If you would like more information about the Litchfield FFA chapter or our activities, please contact Mr. Johnson at the school.
