Norwayne FFA raises funds for their greenhouse

Greenhouse fundraiser by Norwayne FFA

Story by Recorder Kendra Keener

On Saturday Aug. 26, 2017, the Norwayne FFA chapter volunteered at Buckin’ Ohio located in Burbank, Ohio. Buckin’ Ohio is a local rodeo put on by the Thorsell Family who breeds their own bulls for riding purposes. Hundreds of people come to watch the rodeo. Throughout the whole summer, Norwayne FFA members have been helping park cars as a way to earn community service hours. On Saturday the chapter did a little more than park cars and sold 50/50 raffle tickets to help raise money to put toward its up-and-coming chapter greenhouse. Our members raised $1,005 from the 50/50 raffle, and Winkler Tire, a long-time supporter of the
Norwayne FFA, was very generous and matched what we made up to $1,000. We ended up making a total of $2,005 to help out in the chapter. The money we raised wil help stock the greenhouse with supplies, seeds and other miscellaneous tools. The chapter would like to thank everyone who helped out and a special thanks to Winkler Tire for matching what they raised.
