The summer of 2013 was a busy one for Sleepy Eye FFA members as they engaged in numerous community events throughout the summer.
Events such as the Brown County Fair, Farmfest and Corn Days were a few of the many places where the Sleepy Eye FFA, in cooperation with the Farm Safety for Just Kids organization, conducted a free Safety Carnival, which included games where children were able to win prizes while learning about farm safety.
A select group of FFA members were chosen as FFA Summer All-Stars for their hard work and dedication to participating in the safety events and other FFA activities, such as leadership camps. The summer all-stars had to participate in at least seven summer events to be considered all-stars.
This year’s summer all-stars included the following 21 Sleepy Eye FFA members: Savanna Christensen, Lauren Laffen, Matt Miller, Matt Pulley, Jeni Kotten, Bethany Seifert, Ashley Johnson, Josie Schieffert, Miranda McMullen, Kacie Goblirsch, Ken Capacia, Jamie Fischer, Sabrina Portner, Jordyn Domeier, Chris Linan, Marisa Martinez, Colton Gemmill, Kolten Nienhaus, Karrah Remus, Cassidy Hoffmann and Stephanie Hammerschmidt.
These FFA members took time out of their own busy schedules to be involved in the FFA, learn new things and to serve others, which is what the FFA motto is all about. Congratulations FFA Summer All-Stars!
