FFA WEEK continued today as students were introduced to a unique way to make homemade ice cream. FFA President, Lizzie Kight helped to bring in a 1929 John Deere Hit & Miss Engine that powered three, 5-gallon ice cream churn buckets, all custom made. After watching this interesting machine operate, the FFA members were able to enjoy homemade ice cream & they didn’t have to worry about it melting! A special thank you to the FFA Sponsor, Mr. Payne for providing these opportunities for his students.
The Puxico FFA kicked off FFA Week with the Redneck games this evening! The students had a blast! There were lots of laughs as they continued their annual tradition of friendly competition.
