State Fair Ag Education

My son Daniel recently represented our school's FFA (Future Farmer's of America) club by competing at the New York State Fair in diesel engine trouble shooting, small gas engines, and the electrical categories. Dan wants to be an engineer so this fun stuff is right up his alley. He did very well in all categories and made his school proud. We are lucky to be in a school system that still offers FFA. Even though many students in that club do not plan on being farmers, it is a wonderful club. They make maple syrup in the spring, they learn how to repair machinery and learn about farming. Some will be lucky enough to attend the national convention.
