National FFA Week February 15th – 22nd – Thank A Farmer

Colorado FFA Association Jacket
Colorado FFA Association, Facebook

National FFA Week starts on Saturday. I know I don’t fit into my FFA jacket anymore.  For most of my high school days FFA was my life.  I was an officer. I always competed in State Judging at CSU.  I always attended the State Convention.  I even had the opportunity to participate in the Washington Conference Program in Washington D.C. I think it’s call the Washington Leadership Conference now.  I still remember this:

I believe in the future of agriculture, with a faith born not of words but of deeds, achievements won by the present and past generations of agriculturists; in the promise of better days through better ways!

National FFA Week was established in 1947.  The week of George Washington’s birthday was designated ast National FFA Week.  This year it is February 15th-22nd. Many local FFA chapters will be doing activities to celebrate the week. I encourage everyone to support them any way you can.

Agriculture is the most important industry in America. If we don’t have farmers and ranchers, we don’t eat. If we don’t eat…Well, you know. Just wanted to take a moment to thank the American farmer and those who will be our “Future Farmers”. James Wesley did a song this last year called “Thank A Farmer”.  I think it is very fitting!
