Haley Archer, FFA Chapter Treasurer, reminds the community that its annual fruit sale fundraiser is coming to a close. The Warsaw FFA is selling a variety of delicious and healthy fruit along with a variety of cheeses and sausages. The fruit is shipped straight to WCHS by means of Blue Freedom Fresh Fruit Company, so freshness and quality is always guaranteed. It does not matter what kind of fruit customers like because they have everything from apples, pears, oranges, pineapples, and grapefruit along with sampler and gift boxes in varying quantities.
The proceeds of the fundraiser will provide opportunities for FFA members to attend trips to Indianapolis, Indiana for the National FFA Convention, and West Lafayette, Indiana for the State FFA Convention. It will also provide for FFA career and leadership development (CDEs/ LDEs) events such as crops evaluation, forestry evaluation, entomology evaluation, welding, livestock skill-a-thon evaluation, parliamentary procedure, demonstrations, public speaking, community service projects, along with FFA Week Activities.
Fruit sales began on Wednesday, October 7th and will continue to Wednesday, November 11th. An FFA member will deliver the fruit to the customer's door during the week of December 7th, just in time for Christmas. For additional information or to order fruit, contact any Warsaw FFA member or Warsaw Community HS Ag Dept. at (574) 371-5099 ext. 2353.
