National FFA week at Milford High School is approaching quickly with many activities planned for the week of February 16 through 23. On Friday, February 15, the day before FFA week starts,the Sadie Hawkins Dance will be held to help benefit Camp Lenape. The dance sponsored by the Milford FFA will start ticket sales February 4 through the 14 during all school lunches.

On Monday, Feb.16, bowling will start off the Milford FFA week activities, followed by a chicken wing eating contest on Tuesday. On Wednesday a plant science lesson will take place with the annual member barbecue afterwards. A member meeting themed like the television show “Duck Dynasty” and a duck call contest will be the last events planned on the activity list for the national week.

“The theme is all about promoting FFA” said Milford FFA advisor Scott Haldeman.  The overall goal of this national week is to gain more members and build a stronger alliance of kids interested in agriculture.

“FFA week is a great opportunity to develop a stronger pride for what agriculture stands for. It teaches kids not only in Milford but all over the U.S. to appreciate what agriculture has done for the economy and our society,” said MHS junior Amanda Grose.

The purpose of FFA week is to help educate people about agriculture. The week of George Washington’s birthday, which occurs on Februaty 22, was designated as National FFA Week in 1947 at a National FFA Board of Directors meeting according to the National FFA Organization website. To participate in FFA week, contact the MHS advisors or agriculture teachers for more information.
