The FFA held a yard sale on the September 17 to raise money to travel to Indianapolis, IN for the 84th National FFA Convention to compete in livestock judging, learn business trades, practice public speaking, and make friends with other future farmers.
They had all sorts of for sale and a few raffles on the side. There were clothes, books, TVs, golf clubs, movies, and furniture for sale on tables and shelves to help them raise money. Also, there were odd things such as a drunk Santa statue, a set of tires and rims for $200, scuba gear, and a “Hippo Chair”. There were raffles for gift baskets, a .300 Winchester rifle, and a Ducks Unlimited Statue.
In the end, they sold a substantial amount of items and were successful in raising enough money to go.
