A large crowd of residents, teachers and students attended a Preston FFA breakfast Thursday morning.
The annual event started in 2005 and is provided free of charge as a token of appreciation to those businesses and individuals in the community that have supported the local FFA chapter and vo-ag program during the year, according to Preston ag teacher Larin Crossley.
“Chapter funds are used to purchase the needed food. We also received some donated items this year from Ritewoods, Tom Sharp and Organic Valley,” he said.
“Ritewoods donated eggs. Sharp provided ham and Organic Valley the butter.”
“Other individuals allowed us to borrow grills and items needed to put on the breakfast,” he said.
Crossley said the event is planned by a committee of FFA members, in conjunction with FFA officers.
“They look forward to this every year. Last week we had freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors help cook the breakfast and clean up afterwards,” he said.
“It has grown over the years and is a very positive annual event. It provides the FFA members a chance to serve others and show our chapter’s appreciation to the school, administration and community,” he said.
FFA chapter president Katlin Rindlisbaker said it’s an honor for FFA members to do something like the breakfast in order to show the community just how much students appreciate the support they get during the year.
“This pancake breakfast has become a fun tradition for us,” she added.
