Breakfast for the FFAmily

Saturday, February 26, the Mt. Vernon @ Fortville FFAmily hosted its third annual FFA Week Breakfast at the Mohawk United Methodist Church. The doors opened at 6:30 a.m. and community members filled the cafeteria until 10:30. FFA members and parents served biscuits and gravy, pancakes, fruit and pastries to their friends and neighbors, raising over $2,000 with free will donations.

It was incredible seeing these FFA members celebrate the bounty that agriculture brings with the folks they’ve grown up knowing, working alongside, and promoting agricultural education and leadership with. Micah and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the members and supporters, and feel so blessed that we were able to partake in such a great event.

As much as FFA promotes student development in premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education, we witnessed first-hand the impact that community involvement has on individual members.

Mt. Vernon @ Fortville, thank you for allowing us the privilege of joining you this morning! It was an unforgettable experience we both will cherish forever!!!
