The annual Preston FFA breakfast will be held this Thursday, Feb. 20, in the Craner Agriculture Building on the Preston High School campus.
The event started in 2005 and is provided free of charge as a token of appreciation to those businesses and individuals in the community who have supported the FFA chapter and vocational-agriculture program during the year, according to Preston ag teacher Larin Crossley.
“We will have extra tables set up to accommodate the expected crowd,” he said.
“Chapter funds are used to purchase the needed food. We also will have some donated by Ritewoods, Lewiston IFA and Organic Valley.
“Other individuals allow us to borrow grills and items needed to put on the breakfast,” he said.
“They look forward to this and cook the breakfast and clean up afterwards. It has grown over the years and is a very positive annual event for both the students and the community.
“It provides the FFA members a chance to serve others and show our chapter’s appreciation to the school and the area,” he said.
