Due to lack of participation, we have canceled the Camp John Hope workday that was scheduled for this Friday. We will try to reschedule this for the beginning of next school year.
As you well know, community service and service learning is a large part of the FFA. In an effort for students to become a part and have ownership in the local FFA Camp, We are planning a Camp John Hope Student Community Service Day on Friday, May 13th. The day will start at 9:00am in the dining hall and will end at 2:00pm. Mr. Norman Gay, Camp John Hope Director, will provide lunch for the students that come and help that day. Schools are open to bringing as many students as they would like but please provide us with a headcount so we know how many lunches to prepare.
The day's activities will consist of trimming back shrubbery, cleaning up grounds around the camp, planting new shrubs and trees, and other similar events. We need schools to please bring their own tools if possible (shovels, rakes, pruners, etc) since we will not have enough for everyone that attends.
Students should dress comfortable for the day but remain school appropriate. They may also want to bring sunscreen and bug spray.
