Last week, Mr. Bridges emailed all of us about the opportunity to have some
of our FFA members participate in a President's Day program in Plains this
year with President and Mrs. Carter. This is a unique opportunity to allow
your students the opportunity to visit with a former U.S. president. From
what I understand, the seats are going fast and if you would like to
participate, I would encourage you to register as soon as possible. I
realize that many of you may be out of school that day, but I do hope you
will consider the benefits of including your students in this. I hope that
we will have a good representation from our South Region schools at this
event. Please see the messages below and attached documents for information
on registering.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

 Fellow Ag Teachers,

There will be a special Presidents Day activity taking place in Plains,
Georgia on Monday, February 16, 2015. The attached document provides the
details. Please take note that the 50 seats reserved for Georgia FFA are on
a first come basis. The attached form will need to be returned by email or
fax soon if you would like to participate. You will need to receive
confirmation to attend. I hope you will consider providing this opportunity
to some FFA members. Most of us only have a limited number of opportunities
to meet a  former United States President in person. I am sure this will be
another memorable experience. We are fortunate that President Carter holds
the FFA in such high regards.

Best Wishes,


John (Chip) Bridges
