ALLENTOWN, NJ (MONMOUTH)–This past month Jennifer Healey of the Allentown FFA was named the January State Member of the Month for New Jersey. Any FFA member who wishes to become a member of the month for the state has to complete an application which then gets sent to the State. Many members apply for this award every month.

The Allentown FFA apparel sale came to an end this month. It was a huge success and everyone loved the design for the apparel. It was so popular that we decided to do another order due January 17th.

January 16th was our monthly chapter meeting. We had the opportunity to
welcome Mrs Pribell to come and speak to us. We learned alot about the Farm Bureau and how we can be involved. Mrs Pribell also spoke to us about her and her husband’s beekeeping business. It was very interesting to learn about the different types of honey and what it takes to be a beekeeper. We would like to thank Mrs Pribell for this amazing opportunity.

After the meeting was adjourned we held a cupcake decorating
competition.

Coming up in February we have FFA Week. FFA week is held the last week of February which is February 23rd to the 29th. FFA week is a time for chapters all around the country to celebrate FFA and how it has affected each member. During this week we do many fun activities and attend a leadership conference. We are also preparing for our Valentine’s Day fundraiser. In this fundraiser we sell pre-ordered roses that will be sent to the person of their choice on Valentine’s Day.
