Officer Retreat
By Alyssa Lambert
The officers got off to a running start this year thanks to their annual officer retreat this past August. The officer retreat serves as a great opportunity to plan for the year ahead and also work on necessary teamwork skills. The officers took a two day, one night trip to the Ohio FFA Camp Muskingum, located in Carrollton. On the way up to camp, they visited the Ohio Department of Agriculture, touring different branches of the department. Once they arrived at Camp, they spent most of the evening on the lake enjoying the paddleboards, canoes, kayaks, and pontoon boats. They also enjoyed a section of Camp called Adventure Valley, which has different team bonding exercises. In the morning, the officers got to work discussing and planning different events for the upcoming year. All the officers had a great time on the officer retreat and were excited to get the year going.


FFA Camp Muskingum
By Julia Collier
A three-hour journey: one that the Southeastern FFA chapter took head-on as they traveled to Camp Muskingum. While there, the students participated in various activities including water games, paint war, leadership activities, junior overnighters, and much more. This week-long event helped these students improve their qualities of leadership, participation, and excitement for the program. This event is one we hope to continue to learn, grow, and enjoy for the Southeastern FFA chapter for years to come.

Community Garden By Alyssa Lambert For the past four years, the Southeastern FFA chapter has enjoyed the opportunity to have a community garden. Land O Lakes has donated land to the chapter for students to plant, grow, and harvest fresh produce to donate to their local food pantry. the community garden has not only given students the chance to learn about growing produce, but has also given students the chance to earn community service hours and help give back to our community. This year's Harvest was very successful, we were able to donate over five hundred pounds of produce to the Manna Food Pantry at our local church. We also donated one hundred and fifty pounds of sweet corn to the Springfield Soup Kitchen, and another two hundred pounds of sweet corn to the Southgate Baptist Church food pantry. The chapter was very happy that they were able to help so many people with their donations and cannot wait for next year.
