FFA Activites

The Union FFA Chapter participates in the following activities with the goal of fostering community, student, and chapter development.

 

Pet-a-Pet

At the Union Founders Day in June, the FFA provides all types of farm animals and signs to tell local kids what each animal’s mom, dad, and kid are called. When the children are petting the animals, one of the Union FFA Chapter's members will teach the children a little bit about the animal and its back ground.

Adopt-A-Highway

The FFA's portion of Adopt-A-Highway is located on highway EE, just west of Union. The FFA Chapter members pick up trash along this 5.7 mile stretch. The Chapter participates in this community service project four times per year.

Blood Drive

A blood drive benefiting The American Legion is held every third Wednesday of each month at the American Legion Hall. The Union FFA Chapter helps set up by tacking down all of the chairs and tables that are located in the hall and by bringing in the supplies from the American Red Cross. Once the blood drive is over, we help the American Red Cross load their supplies for departure and aid in cleaning the American Legion Hall.

Cemetery Beautification

Our FFA Chapter participates in the beautification of the Union Cemetery, just west of Union. Once per summer, members perform landscaping duties, including raking, mowing, and trimming around headstones and fences, for this abandoned cemetery in order to restore beauty to this community location.

Franklin County Youth Fair

At the Franklin County Youth Fair, our Chapter hosts Agriland, Pedal Tractor Pull, Pig Scramble, Tractor Pull, Minnie Tractor pull, and Pet-A-Pet. All of these activities much preperation time and participation from the members, and is a great opportunity for students to develop their skills in the field of agricultural education.

Operation Clean Stream

This enjoyable activity is a multi-day event of cleaning eight miles of the Bourbeuse River.

Washington Town & Country Fair

Chapter members participate in Agriland at the Washington Town & Country Fair. Members help set up, run, and take down the tractor sales and the grain boxes activities.

FFA Camp

Located in the Lake of the Ozarks, the Union FFA Chapter attends FFA Camp for one week every summer. Our Chapter members cooperate with State FFA Officers to develop leadership skills by participating in games and skits. When not in session, members may go to the lake, play baseball, shuffle board, basketball and much more.

Wurdock Farms

Once per year the Union FFA Chapter takes a field trip to Wurdock Farms to learn about the new technology available in the farming industry. A memberable activity during this field trip is the opportunity members have to stick their hands in a live cow's stomach!
