MIDDLE SCHOOL FFA REPORTER
HARRISBURG, Pa. — On Jan. 16, the
Highland FFA chapter traveled to the Penn-sylvania
Farm Show in Harrisburg.
Chapter members left Highland High
School at 4:15 a.m. and rode a bus to Har-risonburg,
Va. Forty-three chapter members
then got on a charter bus to Pennsylvania.
The chapter stopped at a Bass Pro Shop
right outside of Harrisburg. The Bass Pro
Shop had a 60,000-gallon fish tank. As
everyone roamed around, some found joy
in riding the escalators to get to the upper
and lower levels.
Highland FFA visits
Pennsylvania Farm Show
When the chapter members got to the
farm show, they were allowed to roam
around in groups. The farm show had many
different rooms full of animals, vendors, and
educational exhibits. One vendor had hand-made
candles shaped like food and drinks.
Another had hats and bedazzled belts. One
room had tractors and farm equipment.
Some FFA members watched part of
the rodeo or rode the mechanical bull. The
mechanical bull was Autumn Simmons’
favorite part. Clay Hicks liked the animals.
FFA members enjoyed this trip and look
forward to it next year. They expressed ap-preciation
to their sponsor, Steve Heavner,
who made it possible.
