Smells like TEAM spirit!


The state officer team is getting ready to lasso up some leadership. This weekend is the second Leadership Development Workshop, or LDW. The Indiana FFA hosts two Leadership Development Workshops for chapter officers to attend and the conference focuses on working together as an officer team. This past week the state officers have been hosting spirit days to get pumped for LDW. So far we have had futuristic day, crazy hair day, and hat day! The spirit days are working, and we cannot wait for members to arrive at the Indiana FFA Leadership Center. FFA members get ready for Lassoing Leadership!

It's TIME!

Time is flying by! This past week  has been very busy with the Fort Wayne Farm Show as well as some chapter visits but now the time has come... to plan our last camp! I am so excited to have FFA members from around the state swarming the leadership center in less than 10 days. Or to be exact there is only 224 hours, 54 minutes, and 36 seconds until the opening session on Friday night! As camp is closing in it is always important to remember the necessities when packing to come down to Trafalgar: lots of sugar, a huge smile, and being ready to be inspired! FFA members get pumped!:)

Now that everyone has returned back to school, work and our regular routines we begin to look back on our holiday break. There is no better feeling than being home with your family and friends for the holidays. Talking, telling stories and creating new memories are on the agenda for every family and friend gathering. My holiday break was a fun and exciting one that I do not take for granted. I hope you all don't take your breaks for granted either. My teammates and I did not let any opportunities pass us by upon returning to the FFA Leadership Center. We have been waiting all year for a big enough snow to fall so we could all go sledding down the dam. Over our break we got the snow we had all longed for. We all began piling on layers of socks, pants and coats, tied our snow boots and began the trek over to the dam with sleds in our arms. We all had a blast sledding down the dam even though there were a few close calls with some trees and the creek, it was all still worth the long wait. We created new memories as a team that I will never forget. I hope you all had similar experiences over your holiday break!
