White River FFA sets fundraising dinner, preparing for state contest

Members of White River FFA traveled March 28 to Yelm to compete in the District II Career Development contest. Eleven members placed in the top fIve in their respective contests. With that, 25 members have now earned a berth in state competition May 8-12 in Pullman.

Ag issues, Ag Sales, Rituals, Greenhand, Prepared Public Speaking, Job Interview and Creed are contests in which White River students will compete.

“Many of these kids have been practicing since November,” said Todd Miller, White River FFA adviser. "These FFA kids are so dedicated. We are very proud of them and look forward to the outcome in May.”

White River FFA will be hosting its annual spaghetti feed from 6 to 8 p.m. April 13 in the WRHS commons. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door.

There will be the traditional silent auction with items donated from local businesses, plus a live dessert auction featuring auctioneer Ron Mariotti.

Proceeds from the event help pay for chapter members to compete at the state convention.
