The Watford City FFA Chapter has a strong tradition of developing leaders and serving the community. Members have been busy this summer and school year. In July, we welcomed Miss Hawbaker, our new advisors, and members helped serve at the Bakken Expo at the Roughrider Center. We also partnered with Tractor Supply and celebrated National Hot Dog Day by selling hot dogs in their parking lot to raise money for families affected by the recent tornado. With help from Hawbaker Farms, who donated the food, we raised $812 that was deposited to the relief account. Members were well-represented in Minot as Connor Cross and Kell Helmuth competed in tractor driving, while Savanna Olson showed sheep.

Our Chapter Officers this year are Gracie Dahl (President), Cauy Hartel (Vice President), Kell Helmuth (Secretary), Connor Cross (Assistant Secretary), Shayla Rolla (Treasurer), Isabell Boekelman (Reporter), Jake Leppell (Sentinel), Gabby Kaufman (Student Advisor), Laney Hartel (Historian), and Miranda Voegele (Parliamentarian). We had a retreat in Medora, in which officers planned for the year ahead and had some fun attending the musical, pitchfork fondue and mini golf.

The first few weeks of school have been very busy as members have been working at football concessions and preparing for District Leadership. We will be selling concessions again on Friday, so please come out for burgers, hot dogs and more. We appreciate all the support from our amazing community! Our FFA Chapter has a tradition of community service and leadership development, and we are excited to continue that tradition.
