Fayette FFA 2012.12.12

Both of Fayette FFA's parliamentary procedure teams are advancing to the district competition after success at the county level.

Fayette's advanced team—Miranda Minzey, Cole Burkholder, Cady Stockburger, Demi Powers, Patty Hookstadt, Noelle Goodson, Adriana Hibbard, Alec Hylander, and Taylor West—placed first in the county competition.

This is the first that novice teams have competed. Fayette's team—Kaela Seiler, Alexis Fruchey, Casen Burkholder, Emilie Keiser, Jordan Douglass, Hayley Burkholder, Riley Ruger and Jessie Wheeler—is also moving on to districts.

Parliamentary procedure competition tests a team's knowledge of parliamentary law and procedures through a mock chapter meeting.

​Fayette participated in the county Christmas Cheer event Nov. 16 at Ace Hardware in Wauseon. The students made signs and stood out by the road to promote the cause. A free-will donation hog roast was held. The county FFA chapters raised $4,000 this year for the families of Fulton County.

​The Fayette FFA completed its annual fruit sale with citrus from Florida and Ohio apples.

    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
