On Friday, Feb. 15, the Hillsboro FFA Chapter received a visit from the president of the Highland County Chamber of Commerce, Melissa Elmore. She presented the chapter a check for helping with Ag is Everyone’s Business.



On Feb. 8, the Hillsboro FFA Officers, along with members of other FFA chapters in the county, spent the morning serving drinks and clearing plates for attendees of Ag is Everyone’s Business. After the attendees had their breakfasts, the FFA members had the opportunity to listen in to Mark Gold of Top Third Ag Marketing. Once the event ended, the FFA members helped take down tables and chairs. Mrs. Elmore said she was very thankful that we could come out and help with the event.

In recent years, there has been a pedal tractor auction after the program. Charley Stevens of Stevens Hardware won one of these tractors and donated it to the Hillsboro FFA Chapter to either use as a fundraiser or to put on display as a decoration. Thank you to Charley Stevens for your donation to the chapter.
