Since being elected in May we have participated in Base Camp at the Hanaford Career Center in Middlebury Vermont. At the end of June we had our next training which took place in New York at Camp O! Here we met officers from all over New England and New York. We had a great time, learning about being role models and leaders as well as getting to know the other states. Then our next training sent us to D.C. along with the delegates from all the 50 states. We learned how to advocate for agriculture and met with Senator Sanders, Senator Leahy, and Representative Welch and used our new found information to advocate for agriculture within our own states and other topics.
We volunteered at the Franklin County Fair and Fields days on August 3rd and helped serve ice cream at their FFA Dairy Bar.
We also recently volunteered at the Addison County Fair and Field Days on August 10th at their FFA Dairy Bar.
We look forward to the Lancaster Fair and Field Days which we will be attendeing next!!
