WAUKOMIS, Okla. — Waukomis FFA had an eventful start to the school year.
The chapter held its annual Back to School Bash and also participated in the Sooner Celebration Parade.
At the Back to School Bash, officers had many games planned for FFA members and guests who attended.
This year, the officers decided to open the party up to all students, rather than just FFA members in an attempt to show students what FFA is truly about.
The following Saturday, they competed in the annual Sooner Celebration Livestock Show where a little bit of home town friendly competition came in.
Many of the exhibitors were from Waukomis FFA, but some of the competitors were from Drummond.
The chapter also made a float and rode on it through the parade later that evening. In the middle of the day, they had their annual watermelon feed, where they give free watermelon to the people in downtown Waukomis.
During the summer, FFA officers participated in the annual Oklahoma FFA Alumni Camp.
They listened to multiple different speakers, and they interacted with their respective small groups in many activities to help them become better leaders, both individually and as a team.
The officers also went to Oklahoma City for their annual officer retreat.
At officer retreat, the officers went to the Oklahoma Riversport adventures and participated in multiple rafting events.
This worked as a great team-building exercise for them.
While at officer retreat they also planned out their year and set goals for their chapter.
Waukomis FFA also will attend the Northwest Area COLT Conference later in the year.
