Fort Frye FFA
On Jan. 14 the Fort Frye FFA served dinner at the Marietta Elks Club to help raise money for the soils team to attend the national competition. We would like to thank the Elks for their donation of $618 donation to the Chapter. There were 10 FFA members in attendance and one alumni member that help serve the dinner. The soils team and chapter can not thank the Elks and the community enough for the continued support to the chapter. The FFA chapter looks forward to selling strawberries and B.D. Yummer's BBQ sauce this spring.
