Around the Halls
By Caleigh Parsley
Tuscola FFA takes many opportunities throughout the year to be involved with the
community. Saturday, August 11 the Tuscola FFA was a part of the Tuscola Auto Show held at Ford of Tuscola. The FFA members sold hamburgers and hot dogs with an assortment of chips, cookies, and drinks. Featured at the auto show were: newer or classic/vintage cars, music, and even custom built cars. FFA looks forward to opportunities like these as it’s a way to connect with the community. This is one of many events that FFA participated in this summer and there will be plenty more opportunities to support the chapter this fall.
Over the summer, Key Club participated in the movie nights at the Artisan Market downtown, Relay for Life, Kiwanis Garage Sale, and the Freshmen Cookout. They had a very busy, but successful, fun break!
