The chapter took part in a number of FFA Week activities in February, including blue-and-gold dress-up day, and an FFA assembly with Ag Olympic games and prizes. The chapter also held a breakfast for the school board, teachers and Friends of the Wallowa School Foundation to show appreciation for all the support it received in starting up again last school year at Wallowa High School after an absence of 25 years.
