The FFA motto gives members twelve short words to live by as they experience the opportunities in the organization: “Learning to do, doing to learn, earning to live, and living to serve.” One way that the Sleepy Eye FFA Chapter lives by this motto is by serving at local nursing homes. The Adopt-a-Senior program is designed to help FFA members grow as individuals by developing relationships with others of a different generation. Over the school year, FFA members in grades 9-12 created and delivered cards for their senior citizen. As the school year drew to a close, FFA members from both St. Mary’s and Sleepy Eye High School finally had the chance to visit Countryside and the Care Center for a day of bingo, bonding, and fun.
FFA Members make a difference by getting in touch with the community through the Adopt-a-Senior Program, where they wrote cards to senior citizens.
