Over 250 El Capitan FFA members attended a recent ice cream social meeting.
The meeting was held in the El Capitan High School cafeteria, where students played board games, musical chairs, BINGO and more. At the beginning of the meeting, El Capitan FFA’s chapter officer team started the meeting by performing the FFA opening and closing ceremonies, followed by our chapter President, Dylan Robinson introducing the 2022-2023 Chapter Officer team.
El Capitan’s chapter officer team consists of Dylan Robinson, president; Adrian Miao, vice president; Jordan Garcia, secretary; Esther Navarro, treasurer; Branyon Bliss, reporter; Zach Escobar, sentinel; Anahi Ortega, historian; and Philip Miller, parliamentarian.
After the team was introduced, students were able to choose from multiple flavors of ice cream and toppings. Students spent the next hour socializing with their friends. FFA members were able to collaborate with new people, as well as build friendships. The goal of the meeting was to enjoy time with friends while also having an opportunity to make new friends. The El Capitan FFA Chapter Officer Team was happy with the overall success of the event.
“I believe the meeting went amazingly well,” said Anahi Ortega, El Capitan FFA chapter historian, “I loved being able to see FFA members collaborate in a casual setting. Many students were getting out of their comfort zones and using the meeting as a great opportunity to meet new people.”
On top of all of these amazing things, FFA members brought non-FFA members to the meeting to encourage interest in the ECHS agriculture program.
In conclusion, the Ice Cream Social was a huge success, and El Capitan FFA looks forward to future meetings, where students can enjoy what El Capitan FFA has to offer to all students no matter their background or interests.
