Every school year, our Mt.Nebo FFA chapter holds an opening social to welcome and invite people into FFA. This year’s opening social was a blast. Held on September 8th, It started at 7:00 pm on the lawn in-between the Junior High and vocational building.
Mr. Burton started things by welcoming everyone. He announced the upcoming competitions and passed around sign up sheets. Then, this year’s Mt. Nebo FFA officers then introduced themselves to the group and Karter Peters explained all the games and activities.
In one corner, there were cow dummies set up for roping. Stick-horse barrel and pole racing was set up on the lawn. In both games, people competed for the fastest time by running a pattern through the barrels or poles with a stick horse.
The evening was filled with fun competition, happy conversations, and playful goofing off. Loud, country music played all night as groups talked and laughed at the pole-benders when they slipped. Occasionally, a pop song would come on to give hope to all the country music haters.
With the sun setting, all the games came to a close with refreshments. Water and a variety of pop was set out. Chips and fresh queso was served. Friends said goodbye, FFA officers cleaned up and the gathering came to a close. It was a fun night for everyone.
