United FFA donates to CROP ministry, children’s hospital at meeting

HANOVERTON– The United FFA Chapter recently held its monthly meeting with 22 members and one guest in attendance. President Lauren Hippely called the meeting to order and officer reports from the reporter, secretary and treasurer were given and accepted.

A motion for the chapter to donate $250 to C.R.O.P, was made and passed. Crop is an acronym for the Christian Rural Overseas Program. Its primary mission is to help Midwest farm families to share their grain with hungry neighbors in post-World War II Europe and Asia. Another motion was made to donate $250 to Akron Children’s Hospital, which passed as well. The final main motion made was for the chapter to give out two $500 scholarships to this year’s graduating seniors.

A member moved to adjourn the meeting and it was seconded. The group ended the meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag.
