Each July, the Greenon FFA hosts a summer meeting in order to prepare members for the Clark County Fair. However, due to COVID-19, our meeting had to be done a bit unconventionally. As an officer team, we decided to offer attendance to the meeting both in-person and virtually to give everyone an opportunity to participate. Given the circumstances, our turnout was great: 28 guests present!
Typically at our summer meeting, we would organize various fair activities. Assigning corn booth shifts, officer barn duties, and finalizing Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) visits would usually take place, but our county fair was going to be run differently this year. Non-livestock SAEs weren’t able to be exhibited at fair--that means gardens, photography, woodworking, etc. The FFA program as a whole came up with an idea to still showcase our members’ hard work, despite not being able to show it at the fair. Members were advised to make a powerpoint describing what their SAE is, what they do for it, and what they have learned.
Luckily, we had a bit of normalcy. At the meeting, officers introduced new items of business to be open for discussion for the entire chapter. Some of these topics include community service, home improvement, and other fair reminders. Community service for all of our members will be maintained at 10 hours for the year. The five hour home improvement requirement, however, was nullified. Members will still need to do some home improvement, it just doesn’t need to be a certain amount of hours anymore. The officer team presented each fair reminder straight to the point. Simply put, we just reiterated the basics of fair: send out buyers letters, keep pens neat and clean, help out fellow members, etc. After discussing those items of business, no one had any new business, which meant we were ready to adjourn the meeting.
To adjourn the meeting, we did closing ceremonies and concluded with the pledge, as we do at every other meeting. Despite all the uncertainty this year has been filled with, fortunately, this meeting was the smidge of normalcy we needed.
