Echo and Stanfield FFA Chapters held their annual dinner and auction and dinner on November 3, 2012. This year the auction was held in the action was held in the Echo High School Gym. Thanks to the Echo School District with their purchase of padded chairs it allowed for the auction to run smooth. Not only was this the first year for it to be at Echo, this year we allowed for people to pay with a credit card. With the help of Charles Kelsoe the payment with credit card was possible. Thank you for everyone who cam out and supported the two chapters.
Ms. Noland took four kids to Indianapolis, Indiana October 22-28, 2012. Eric Coffelt, Cassie Wagner, Lesley Ibarra, Zachary Christensen, and Ms. Noland spent their time in Indiana wisely. They did tours of Churchill Downs, Louisville Slugger, Keenland.
