{ Continued from page 14 } TULARE FFA Tulare FFA “Cans” Hunger Submitted by Evan Garcia As Tulare FFA extends their community service outreach into the second semester of the school year, we have planned and executed a canned food drive for those less fortunate in our community, who did not have food during the holidays. Members of Tulare FFA brought in hundreds of cans that were donated to local food banks to be distributed among those who need it. Not only did we “can” hunger, this was and eye-opening and humbling experience for our members, that we wish to continue for years to come! FIREBAUGH FFA Rolling Out The New Year With Firebaugh FFA Submitted by Jacquelin Tinoco Theme of this year’s February meeting was bowling. It was held at Aqua Entertainment in Los Banos and it was outstanding to see our members get their game on. Many got strikes and were congratulated with cheers and applause and even if their roll wasn’t as successful, they would encourage one another by saying “you’ll get it next time.” After they had fi nished their game of bowling they were allowed to go to the arcade or they could play a game of laser tag. The members took their pick and the ones that went to the arcade won some great prizes, whereas the members who played laser tag blasted their enemies away.
