FFA members work hard to achieve “Good Times” at Barnwarming

   FFA members were finally able to celebrate their weeks of planning and preparations during the annual Barnwarming dance. Despite the dance only lasting the night of November 11th, FFA members spent weeks beforehand planning the event.

   “We all worked together to make sure the decorations were up to our standards. It was time-consuming, but it was worth it in the end.” sophomore Brandi Hubert said.

Before the dancing and games started, an induction ceremony was held for those receiving greenhand degree and chapter degree certificates. A dinner followed the induction ceremony and then students spent the rest of the night dancing and playing candidate games set in place by president of FFA senior Ashlyn Yoder. Halfway through the night, a crowning ceremony resulted in sophomore Emily Engebretsen and freshman Lerran Yoder as the Barnwarming Queen and King. To conclude the night, students participated in a “pumpkin’ smash,” where students who paid got to smash pumpkins with a sledgehammer, bat, and/or wrench.
