Strong community support results in continued success for the Prairie Central FFA chapter.

Organizers hope to see many familiar faces during the upcoming Hog Roast and Auction set for Thursday, March 19 at Prairie Central High School in Fairbury. A free meal is served from 4-6:30 p.m. with the auction immediately following in the nearby gym.

“We couldn’t do this without the support we get from the community and those around us – that’s what makes it work,” said PC FFA Treasurer Cassidy Edelman.

Those attending the auction will see who wins the restored Farmall tractor and raffle tickets will be sold up until the auction begins.

“We draw the ticket for the tractor then the winner will be announced at the auction,” explained chapter vice-president Alexandria Brown.

This has been a great year for the PC FFA with seven state winning teams, national champions in ag sales, second in dairy products, ag mechanics and dairy cattle and fourth in vet science. The chapter received ninth in ag business management and the silver emblem for meats. The FFA has won state contests in dairy products and ag sales.

“We were pretty successful when it came to competitions and going to nationals this past year,” Edelman said.

Several teams are already preparing again for different state contests. Also, 10 students earned their state FFA degree with two earning their American FFA degree.

This has been a fun winter for the PC FFA – especially during National FFA Week in February.

“We had our ag olympics and this year, we had different jars set out so the teachers and students would put money into the jars,” added Brown.

A petting zoo held in the high school ag shop allowed kids not familiar with agriculture to get a close look at farm animals. Young children even had the chance to participate in activities to better understand where their food comes from.

More information on the FFA chapter is a click or swipe away via Facebook and other online outlets.

“We have an Instagram page that we put posts on quite often and we do different stories,” noted Edelman.
