MV FFA Hosts 46th Annual Fall Fair

The Mississinawa Valley FFA chapter held their 46th annual Fall Fair on October 1st, 2015. There was a great interest in the chicken and ham dinners this year as the chapter sold over 1,600 dinners! Each meal consisted of a chicken half or 2 slices of ham, applesauce, green beans, a roll, a drink and pie. The meal is prepared entirely by the student members of the chapter along with some help from the Mississinawa Valley Cafeteria Staff. Every year, the MV FFA works hard to make the Fall Fair a success, and with the help of the members this year’s event was record setting.

Like in years past, each FFA members brought in a minimum of 4 exhibits that were judged and displayed in the Ag shop for the community to come see. The different categories of items included: hay, grain, flowers, eggs, fruits, vegetables, baked goods, and shop items. The most points earned in each category were awarded as follows: Shop: Tie between David Townsend and Leslie Dirksen, Flowers: Daisy Brim, Baked Goods: Tie between Hope Jankowski and Emily Yount, Vegetables: Grant Stachler, Grain: Blake Scholl, Hay: Mason Hummel, Fruit: Tie between Grant and Madison Stachler, Eggs: Colyn Nelson, Canned Goods: Hope Jankowski, and the overall winners were 1st place Grant Stachler, 2nd place Madison Stachler, 3rd place Hope Jankowski, 4th place Daisy Brim, and 5th place Will Hall.

Many of our dedicated community members come out each year during the day and help judge our Fall Fair items. The MV FFA would like to thank all of the judges for spending their time helping us out and making our Fall Fair possible every year!

Also, a special thank you to all of the members, whom without all of your hard work and dedication, Fall Fair would not have been a success! Another big thank you goes out to our local Main Street Market for donating bags and Cal Maine for donating boxes. The Mississinawa Valley FFA is very proud of the successful event we had this year and is looking forward to other events we have planned.
