Retreating and Celebration

Retreating and Celebration:

Among the preparation for all the upcoming events, the state officers were able to take Friday and Saturday off to take a trip back down to Kentucky. The first stop was in Starlight, Indiana at Huber’s Winery. Huber’s Winery is the fourth largest attraction for agrirtourism in Indiana.  As a team, we were able to tour their facilities and try some of their delicious hot apple cider along the way.  Since no FFA trip is complete without some good food, we decided to stop for lunch before making our way down to Louisville.  We decided to stop and enjoy Jack Huber’s family style country home cooking which was right across the road from Huber’s Winery.  After a great meal and sharing many laughs it was time to continue our retreat onward to Louisville.

Once arriving, the team had the opportunity to go zip lining at the Mega Caverns in Louisville Kentucky.  We all had a blast zipping through the dark caves, even though, Shelby got stuck in the middle.

Concluding the excitement of zip lining the team headed back to the hotel to enjoy each other’s company and some Papa John’s pizza. The next morning was full of hair spray and fancy clothing as we all prepared ourselves for the two hour drive to Frenchburg, Kentucky. There we were fortunate enough to help our former assistant executive director, Coty Back, celebrate his wedding day.  After the “’I Dos” were shared, it was only appropriate that we celebrated with some good ole food and line dancing.  We were truly blessed to be a part of Coty and Nikki’s special day and we wish them a blessed future together. 

As the team and I prepare for another busy week, we look forward to spending the weekend with many Indiana FFA members for our first Foundations in Reaching Excellence Conference.

With Much Love,
