FBLA and FFA groups make donations from
canned goods collections
Food, canned goods, toiletries, hygiene products, and
dry food items were some of the items collected by
FBLA and FFA members through local and school com-
petition collections. All items collected were donated
back to local individuals, churches, and service organi-
zations to help the less fortunate. Boxes of food were
donated to the Mason City Baptist Church, residents
of the Litchfield Manor Apartments, Custer County
Food pantry and the Central Nebraska Community
Action Partnership in Loup City.
A total of 23 boxes were made up from the collections
to divide up to the organizations. Thanks to all who
donated to make this a successful project of the local
high school service organizations.
Accounting students make real life
connections with Monopoly.
Accounting students in Mrs. Finley’s class learned
how to connect accounting concepts and proce-
dures to real life situations playing Monopoly.
Instead of just playing Monopoly with exchange of
fake money the students had to analyze every
transaction and every dollar when purchasing
property, receiving money, or paying annoying
expenses. Journals, General Ledgers, and cash
receipt and payment logs had to be kept so the
students would understand how each and every
transaction affects your cash and bank balance.
The students realized adulating is hard and the
game would have been a lot more enjoyable to
play without doing all the paperwork.
