Though “farm,” is in the organization’s name, members of Future Farmers of America chapters like Sevastopol are still taking away valuable lessons from their experiences without it. The Sevastopol FFA practices parliamentary procedure during their monthly meetings and attend many events focusing on leadership. Members can also participate on a state and national level in the organization’s band and choir. With the number of farms dwindling in Door County, Sevastopol FFA advisor Dale Carlson says the organization has changed with the agriculture industry.
Carlson says kids should join FFA for its opportunities in leadership and community service. The Sevastopol FFA boasts over 40 youth and 80 alumni members. You can hear more about the Sevastopol FFA during this Saturday’s Ask the Expert presented by Septic Maintenance at 7:30 a.m. on 96.7 WBDK as we celebrate National FFA Week.
