South Barber FFA officers (L to R) Avery Grieve, Allie Hoch, Kate Perschbacher, Takira Blick, and Ruston Erikson pause for a photo during their recent officer re-treat to Wichita.
In preparation for the upcoming school year, the South Barber FFA officers
recently attended a re-treat together. On Tuesday, August 6th, members
headed to Wichita for some fun, relaxation, team building, and to work
on several chapter areas of business such as chapter officer contracts,
FFA program of activities, chapter goals and the calendar for the
upcoming school year. On Tuesday evening chapter officers relaxed at The
Alley game room, where they bowled, rode go carts, and played games.
Later that evening the group also completed an escape room together at
Escapology, which required excellent communication and teamwork skills
to complete. The team solved the clues and found the code to escape the
room with just over ten minutes to spare! After the escape room members
went out for a nice meal together and then back to the hotel to swim or
just relax. Wednesday morning the chapter officers ate breakfast
together and then met in the hotel conference room where they began
working on important chapter business. Throughout the day Wednesday,
much discussion was had about local chapter activities, community
service opportunities, and a variety of ideas and thoughts for making
the 2019 – 2020 school year a great one! After a long day of working on
chapter items of business, the team arrived back home around 8 PM
Wednesday evening. Chapter officers attending were Takira Blick,
President, Kate Perschbaucher, Vice-President, Allie Hoch, Secretary,
Ruston Erickson, Treasurer, and Avery Grieve, Reporter. Chapter Sentinel
Hannah Mcoullagh was not able to attend. The re-treat was a great
opportunity for the officer team to get away together and participate in
team building exercises, share some laughs and to brainstorm their
thoughts on the fast approaching school year.
