SD FFA celebrates National FFA Week - Lennox Sundstrom to host Pancake Feed this Saturday

The Lennox FFA Sundstrom Chapter is celebrating National FFA week this week with special dress up days all week. 

The week will culminate with their Pancake Feed on Saturday, Feb. 10 from 7 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Lennox Intermediate School Cafeteria, 208 W 5th Ave. A free will donation will be accepted. All proceeds from the event will benefit Jim Jibben. You can chose to dine in or take a plate to go. 

The 110 chapters and 6142 members that make up the South Dakota FFA (SD FFA) will be celebrating in their own way to honor National FFA Week held Feb. 17-24. This marks a time to share what FFA is and the impact it has on members every day. 

National FFA Week embraces more than 95 years of FFA traditions while looking forward to the organization’s future. More than 945,000 members with a passion for agriculture will participate in activities at local, state and national levels.  Designated a national week in 1947, the week of George Washington’s birthday, National FFA Week runs from Saturday to Saturday and gives FFA members an opportunity to educate the public about agriculture. During the week, chapters conduct a variety of activities to help others in their schools and communities learn about FFA and agricultural education. Members of the SD FFA will celebrate National FFA Week by participating in activities including themed dress-up days, fundraisers, banquets and educational activities within their school and community. 

“National FFA week is a special time for our organization and something we look forward to all year,” says Gerri Ann Eide, Executive Director of the South Dakota FFA Foundation. “We enjoy any time when we can help educate the public about agriculture, so having a week designated to that cause is very valuable to us.”

Through agricultural education and hands-on learning, FFA members across the state and nation are preparing for over 300 unique career opportunities in the food, fiber and natural resource industries.
