The week of February 18 - 26, 2017 has been designated FFA (Future Farmers of America) Week in order to celebrate the FFA which was founded in 1928. FFA week always runs from Saturday to Saturday, including February 22, Washington's Birthday. This year on Wednesday, February 22, 2017 The Central Vermont Chapter of the FFA will be performing will celebrate by performing community service. Our chapter received a $400 grant to process firewood for heating assistance for those in need in our community. A log load was purchased with the grant and the students of the FFA Chapter will start the work of processing the logs into firewood this week. We would like to invite community volunteers to help stack wood along with the chapter members on February 22 from 9:30 until 4:30 in the parking lot in back of Randolph Technical Career Center. The firewood will be distributed with the help of Capstone Community Action.
