HRV chapter observes National FFA Week

National FFA week is Feb. 15-22 this year and the Hood River Valley FFA Chapter has several activities planned at the local level.

The first activity in the community is the “Pass The Pig” fundraiser which will be held on Feb. 18 beginning at 9 a.m. Pass the pig works like this:

If a local business wishes to send a pig to you, FFA members will show up with a baby pig. In order to get rid of the pig the FFA asks for a $20 donation and the name of the business that you would like to send the pig to. That business will then send the pig on to another business.

On Saturday, Feb. 22 the Hood River Valley, FFA will host the sixth-annual FFA Farmer’s Breakfast.

The meal is a free, country style breakfast, provided by the FFA Chapter for the agricultural community or anybody interested.

In addition to the breakfast, FFA members will be conducting tours of the agricultural facilities at Hood River Valley High School. Members will highlight projects and upcoming events.

The breakfast will be held in the HRVHS cafeteria and run from 7 to 11 a.m. — or when the food runs out. For more information on the Farmer’s Breakfast, or to sign up for Pass The Pig, contact Don Schmidt or Nita Bozarth at Hood River Valley High School at 541-386-4500, ext. 4563 or ext. 4562.

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"

‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
