Gustine FFA

A number of Gustine FFA members were on hand Sunday, Nov. 11, to show their respect and appreciation for those who served by taking part in the annual Veterans Day parade.

Gustine FFA members had a busy month of November, taking part in numerous events and activities.

Several members participated in the Veterans Day parade on Sunday, Nov. 11. Members walked down Main Street in Gustine to show their support for our veterans and their families.

Hunter Silva, Gustine FFA member said “I love our small town. I love how everyone comes together as a community and rallies for our veterans.”

Gustine FFA continues to support our veterans and active military members and members enjoy coming together to show our love for them each year.

Gustine FFA held its annual Chapter Degree ceremony during the Nov. 14 meeting. At this event, second year FFA members receive their Chapter Degree which is the second degree they can earn as an FFA member.

There are various time, earnings and participation requirements these students must meet to receive their Chapter Degree.

Lalanie Brace, second year Gustine FFA member reported, “I love being a part of FFA and have worked really hard to get involved. Being awarded the Chapter Degree means that my hard work has paid off!”

Gustine FFA had multiple students earn their Chapter Degree this year. These students will continue to work hard to receive their State FFA Degree next year.

The November FFA meeting was also the time that FFA members brought non-perishable items for the canned food drive. All food was donated locally to the Agape Food Pantry. Members also brought in blankets and other supplies to donate to the Butte County fire victims. Gustine FFA members enjoy helping others through both service and giving, and their spirit of goodwill is evident throughout the year.
