On March 5, London McDonald’s Team

Holowicki presented $1,000 to London City

Schools to help fund expansion of The

Raider Rack.

Melissa Canney, student support specialist,

established The Raider Rack three years

ago at London Elementary as a space where

students can pick out new clothing, shoes,

and coats donated by the community. Students

are referred by teachers.

This year, to improve convenience and accessibility, Canney

wanted to expand The Raider Rack’s services to locations at the

middle school, high school and Fairhaven School. The donation from

McDonald’s helped to make that happen.

“So many students live with single parents or grandparents, and

their dollars are stretched. Not having to make an extra trip to the

store is a help to them,” Canney said.

The eighth-grade female empowerment and service group, ROX

(Ruling Our Experiences), sorted and set up new items donated to

The Raider Rack’s middle school location.

“It’s about being cognizant of students’ needs beyond academics,”

said Michael Belmont, middle school principal. “When they have a

need, we can show them we care by giving them the essentials they

need to get through every day. Then their academics can improve.”

great to see all the kids back in the classrooms.”

He thanked the bus drivers, foodservice team, custodians, teachers

and everyone else who helped with the transition.

The district is collaborating with other central Ohio schools to

create a recovery plan to address learning gaps created by the pandemic.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine is requiring every school district in

the state to post a recovery plan by April 1.

Jonathan Alder, along with other area districts, is adopting the

“Bridge” concept which focuses on four points of progress:

social/emotional well-being, academic achievement, culture and climate,

and equity and accessibility.

“This is the work that we regularly do, but the scale of our efforts

and the size of the need for these resources is greater than ever before,”

Chapman said.

In other action, the school board accepted donations from several

entities for installation of a new scoreboard for the high school softball

field. Tim Dawson, owner of The Grainery and Pioneer Pizza,

donated $15,000 toward the project. Doug Phelps of Union Propane

and Greg Jacobs made donations valued at $10,000 for the foundation

drilling and concrete for steel supports. Ron Yoder of R&T Electric

donated approximately $2,000 for the electric installation.

The board recognized students who participated in the Madison

County Spelling Bee. Anna Engle, a member of the Jonathan Alder

Junior High team, was this year’s spelling bee champion.

The next school board meeting is set for April 12 at 5:30 p.m. in

the high school library.

Now’s the time to start

cool season plantings

Something on your mind? Write a letter to the editor.

78 S. Main St., London, OH 43140 • madison@columbusmessenger.com

Hooray for St. Patrick’s Day! Many consider

the last half of March to be the official

start of the growing season, when you can

start cool season flowers and vegetables. Do

you know the difference between cool season

veggies and warm season veggies? It’s

exactly what you’d expect from the name.

Cool season plants prefer the cooler

temps of very early spring, 60’s and 70’s

with chilly nights. They are unfazed by late

frosts, even though they might suffer some

damage. However, if a hard freeze or several

nights of frost are predicted, they appreciate

being covered until the morning

sun warms them up a bit. Cool season

plants tell you when their short season is

over. They bolt, meaning they get tall and

lanky and produce seed. Many become

tough or bitter when eaten.

Warm season plants prefer temperatures

up into the 80’s, and they want balmy

nights over 50 degrees. They will not survive

a frost without protection. If planted

too early, they will shiver until the soil

warms sufficiently for them to start growing.

Tomatoes are the No. 1 warm season

vegetable in Ohio.

Ohio has two cool seasons—spring and

fall. Plant the first cool season crop about

six weeks before the local frost-free date.

The second cool crop is planted about six

weeks before the first anticipated frost date

(early to mid-August).

What to plant? There are so many options,

it is hard to choose. Cool season flowers

include pansies, violas, stock,

snapdragons, and more. This is a great time

ball, and shuffleboard courts are planned,

as well.

“The idea is to facilitate socialization, one

of the things people lose as they age,” Gross

said. “And when you take away the hazards

that people have in their homes, and they

are able to get rid of responsibilities like

mowing the grass and plowing snow, all

that’s left is fun.”

As for when the entire complex will be

completely built out, Gross said demand

will drive the timeline to a degree but that

he expects to be finished by the end of 2022.

On March 4, London city council unanimously

approved a 100 percent property tax

exemption for 10 years for the project. The

property sits in an area the city and state

designated as a Community Reinvestment

Area (CRA). The designation allows local

governments to offer tax incentives to encourage

economic development.

Per the agreement, Gross, as the developer,

intends to invest at least $18 million

into the project, complete it by December

2023, and create 20 full-time jobs with a

total payroll of $600,000.

In actuality, Gross said, those numbers

Master Gardener

to start your porch planters with pansies

and violas. In late May or June, replace

your cool flowers with warm flowers, and

you’ll have many extra weeks of bloom. Vegetables

offer even more options. Lettuce,

arugula, kale, endive and almost all leafy

greens love a good shiver. Radishes, beets,

peas, carrots, broccoli, potatoes and onions

also like a chilly start. Cool season herbs include

parsley, cilantro, fennel and others.

When planting so early in the spring, it

is important to protect the garden bed. If

the garden is spongy wet, don’t walk in it

any more than necessary. Plant only the

perimeter if the center is too sodden. Don’t

try to till the soil when it is wet; it is easily

compacted and will turn into hard, unproductive

clumps. If your garden contains

plant material from last year, remove what

you can and plant around what’s left. Don’t

worry about fertilizer unless you know your

soil is depleted and then use a light hand.

Most cool season veggies are not heavy feeders,

and fertilizing can easily be overdone.

Go ahead! Grab a seed packet and try

some early veggies. You will be eating fresh

produce in just a few weeks.

will be higher.

“We expect to create 70 jobs by the end of

2022. Our payroll numbers will be more

than double what is listed (in the CRA

agreement). And we expect the project cost

to be closer to $30 million,” he said.

London City Schools and Tolles Career

and Technical Center have signed off on the

property tax exemption. Currently, the land

is enrolled in the Current Agricultural Use

Value (CAUV) program. As such, it generates

just a couple hundred dollars in property

tax each year. While the schools will not

receive property taxes from the development

for 10 years, they will receive 50 percent of

the income tax the project generates.

Rich Hays, the city council member who

sponsored the CRA agreement legislation,

praised Gross as a proven businessman and

said he is excited about the project.

“This is a tremendous asset coming to our

city,” he said.

Henry Comer, city council president, said

residents have been clamoring for more sitdown

restaurant options and that the project

as a whole has the potential to attract

more investment to the city.

“It seems like a win-win situation for

everyone—for the schools, for the city, for the

community,” he said.

Adoptable Pets

www.madisonmessengernews.com

The following are among the pets up for

adoption at the Humane Society of Madison

County. If you are interested in adopting a

pet, fill out an application online at

www.hsmcohio.org or call the shelter at

(614) 879-8368.

Frito

This cute boy has a sweet pitty smile and

gives even sweet pitty kisses. Just give him

a few minutes to explore, then he’s ready for

love. Frito is deaf, but he doesn’t let that

hold him back. He’s a smart boy and is

quickly learning hand signals without being

distracted by outside noises.

Frito hasn’t shown a lot of interest in

toys, with the exception of puzzle toys with

treats inside; he sniffs them out. Frito’s favorite

pastime is snuggling with people. His

reaction to other dogs has been hot and cold,

so he will thrive best as an only dog, His interaction

with cats is a little too enthusiastic

for most felines. This boy likes to keep his

kennel clean with no accidents; he always

waits until he can make it outside to potty.

Frito is a Kentucky boy, having transferred

from a shelter there. He has an estimated

birthdate of Feb. 3, 2017, and weighs

about 50 pounds. He has been at the shelter

since Feb. 3. Don’t skip out on this handsome

hunk of love.

Adoption fees for dogs are as follows:

shelter dogs, $150; prison dogs, $200; puppies,

$250; popular pure-breeds, $400. Fees

includes a Home Again microchip, shots, deworming,

heartworm testing (if old enough),

spay or neuter, and a one-year rabies shot

(if old enough). All dogs that are adopted

must leave with a county license at an additional

cost of $17. The license fee is cash

only. Adoption fees can be paid by credit

card or cash.

Mags

Mags is a long-haired, diluted calico with

an estimated birthdate of July 24, 2018.

Mags has learned that she can trust people

to be kind and gentle with her. She is still a

quiet kitty, but once she gets comfortable

and sits in your lap, her little purr motor

fires up. She enjoys many chin and ear

scratches.

She has gotten along well with the other

cats at her foster home and mostly ignores

the two big dogs there. Mags needs a patient

person who is okay with giving her a little

bit of time to get acquainted and feel safe.

That person will be rewarded with a beautiful

kitty who will love them forever.

Adoption fees are $80 for kittens up to 6

months old and $60 for cats 7 months and

older. The fee includes a FeLV/FIV test,

spay or neuter, shots, deworming, and a

one-year rabies shot (if old enough). Fees

Frito

can be paid by cash or credit card.

have the safety of our students and

staff our priority.”

School board member David Harper said

changes in education since the pandemic

started have been devastating for children,

and he thinks the school system’s return to

more normal operations is “great.”

Mullett also announced the district’s intention

to return to its traditional graduation

ceremony this spring in the stadium,

albeit under COVID-19 protocols.

“We are also planning to have other yearend

events, such as prom and awards ceremonies,”

he said.

In other action, the board accepted Debbie

Omen’s resignation for retirement purposes

effective June 30. Omen is principal

at the middle school. Her career in education

spans 40 years.

Harper praised Omen for the way she

reaches out to students and cares for them

in times of need.

Mullett said Omen was the West Jefferson

Education Association president when

he started working for the district. He said

it has been a great pleasure having her as a

member of the staff.

“As good as Deb has been as a teacher

and principal, she’s 10 times better as a person,”

Mullett said.

London to implement one-call system

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

The city of London soon will implement

a one-call system to directly notify residents

of important information, such as boil alerts

after water main breaks.

A notice went out in this month’s utility

bills, explaining the one-call system and

asking residents to provide the city with

contact information—a land line number,

cell phone number, or email address.

The one-call system will be used only for

“important stuff,” said Mayor Pat Closser at

the March 4 city council meeting. He used

the boil alert example.

“While our guys are trying to get out to

knock on doors, we can text, call or email

those people who are affected right away,”

he said. “Another example is for people who

live on snow emergency routes. We can tell

them to get their

cars off the road if a

big snow is coming.”

With the one-call

system, city leaders

will be able to send

out calls citywide or

to a targeted audience,

depending on

the need.

“We hope to have

the system up and running in the next couple

of months,” Closser said.

City facility rental fees

In other updates, Closser informed council

that the city properties commission and

parks and recreation commission are reviewing

the fees the city charges to rent its

facilities, such as the parks and the public

auditorium and theater located at city hall.

“We want to see if we are charging

enough,” he said.

He noted that the auditorium and theater,

where city council meets, is a “fantastic

room” now. It is outfitted with

audio/visual technology, tables, and chairs.

“It would be great for a wedding, it would

be great for a conference—things like that,”

he said. “We want to get the rental fees figured

out so that when COVID restrictions

are gone we can start renting it out.”

Liquor licenses and restaurants

Closser also talked about liquor licenses.

Paul Gross, a London resident and developer,

plans to build a sit-down restaurant

on State Route 56 SW, in front of the Bluebird

Retirement Community. Closser said

someone else is considering putting in a

restaurant in downtown London.

The interest brings up one of the challenges

the city faces when it comes to attracting

new sit-down restaurants and bars:

Drive-Through Easter Event

Due to COVID-19 and Madison County Public

Health regulations, the Madison County Community

Center will not host its traditional Easter egg hunt this

year. Instead, the center is holding a socially distanced,

drive-through event.

From 10 a.m. to noon on April 3, the center will hand

out bags of eggs filled with goodies and other treats for

children up to 11 years old. The bags will be handed out

at the cars. The event will take place rain or shine. The

Easter Bunny might make an appearance.

Pre-registration is required. Send email to msccinc@embarqmail.com.

Social distancing, masking and

frequent sanitizing will be in effect. The center is located

at 164 E. Main St. For details, call (740) 869-2453.

events

a low number of available liquor licenses.

The state allows one of each class of liquor

license per 2,000 people.

“With 10,000 people, we don’t get a lot of

licenses,” Closser said, adding that there’s

no way to change that ratio.

One way around the problem, he said, is

a “trex” transfer, a state-approved process

that allows the transfer of a liquor license

from one community to another, as long as

local government officials approve it.

Closser said he is encouraging Gross and

the other interested party to do this.

“City council is on board to get things

like this—these restaurants, these nice

places to sit down and have a drink or

maybe watch a game or have a nice meal,”

he said. “We’re going to be willing to pass

legislation to bring in those licenses to bring

those (restaurants and bars) in.”

Longtime clerk retiring

Arlene Duffey, who has served as city

council clerk for 35 years, is retiring. She

will attend her final council meeting on

March 18.

“Arlene has been with us for a long time,

through a lot of city council presidents,”

Closser said. “For all these city council presidents

to say, ‘No, I want to keep Arlene,’ it

just shows a lot to what she’s done for the

city.”

Archaeological Society

On March 16, the Darby Creek Chapter of the Archaeological

Society of Ohio will hold its monthly meeting

at the Madison County Historical Society, 260 E.

High St., London. The building will open at 5:30 p.m. for

socializing and individually wrapped snacks, followed by

the meeting at 6 p.m. No presenter or presentation is

scheduled. All those who attend must wear a facemask

covering the nose and mouth. Social distancing is

planned. Anyone showing or thinking they have symptoms

of COVID-19 or other flu like symptoms, or who

have recently been around someone having or showing

symptoms of COVID-19 or other flu like symptoms, are

asked not to attend. Anyone interested in Native American

and/or metal detecting artifacts is welcome.

Time to find your spark

By Frances Foos

4-H Extension Educator for Madison County

“You can be anyone you want to be when

you grow up!” This is the phrase we often

tell our children. We want them to know

they can reach for the stars., but what do we

do to show them they can do anything?

In 4-H, we call this “finding your spark.”

4-H members enroll in projects that help

them find and nurture this spark—their passion,

interests, talents and what eventually

can lead to their career, enjoyment, and belonging

in the community. 4-H allows youth

to try something new and gain exposure to

something they otherwise may have never

had the chance to explore.

Want to learn about rocketry? There’s a

project for that. Interested in shooting

sports or exploring the outdoors? We have

several projects related to those topics. 4-H

projects include livestock, rockets, cats,

dogs, shooting sports, trees, woodworking,

nutrition, creative arts, scrapbooking, cake

decorating, and more. Ohio 4-H offers more

than 200 projects that can pique your child’s

interest and help them find their spark.

So, how do you get started? 4-H members

start by joining a club. Madison County 4-H

is home to more than 30 community clubs

scattered throughout the county in London,

West Jefferson, Plain City and Mount Sterling.

Adult advisors who are trained and

background checked help youths to grow into

responsible, skilled adults, assisting them

with project work and providing opportunities

to learn and engage with their peers.

Clubs hold at least six regular meetings

throughout the year in addition to other experiential

learning experiences. At club

meetings, members discuss business while

including time for education and recreation.

Every club contributes to the community

with a service project, such as collecting donations

or donating time to fixing up the

fairgrounds or an area park.

Once a member joins a club, they can

choose their projects. Members can review

and purchase project books at the Madison

County Extension Office. Another way to

easily preview the project books and resources

is to visit projectcentral.ohio4h.org.

You can preview the book pages and read reviews

on projects from other 4-H members

and their family members.

Members can participate in many

county, state and national opportunities.

Madison County hosts a county-wide 4-H

camp, demonstration contests, judging opportunities

and clinics. At the state level, 4-

Hers can participate in camps related to

forestry, shooting sports, and STEM (science,

technology, engineering and math).

There’s even a sea camp. The options are

endless for what your can do in 4-H; every

child paves their own path through 4-H.

Ready for your spark? Madison County’s

deadline to join 4-H is March 15 to be eligible

to participate in this year’s Madison County

Junior Fair, or March 30 for new members.

To enroll in a 4-H project and competitive

events, a child must be 8 years old and in

third grade or 9 years old through the age of

19 as of Jan. 1 of the current year. Any child

that is age 5 and in kindergarten through

second grade can enroll as a Cloverbud.

Contact the OSU Extension Office, Madison

County, at (740) 852-0975 to obtain a

list of clubs available in Madison County.

Extension OSU” on Facebook for additional

information.

Ambitious 4-Her operates 22-hole rabbitry

By Anna Drewes

Beginners to Winners 4-H Club member

Raising rabbits has been one of the best opportunities I have

been given. It comes with its challenges but overall has been a great

experience. At the age of 8, I started with one Holland lop doe. I

now operate a 22-hole rabbitry focused on raising show quality Holland

lops.

When looking for an animal to add to my breeding program, I

focus on rabbits that closely match the American Rabbit Breeders

Association Standard of Perfection. As far as bucks go, I like to see

a very massive, big-boned and muscular build, especially pertaining

to the head. It’s important to have a very well-rounded buck. They

will be the foundation to your herd, and their genetics will lead your

breeding program. Does are very important, although their traits

are easier to manipulate than bucks’ traits, hence the reason brood

does and show does are simultaneously used in top nationally competitive

breeding programs.

While selection is a key component in starting a winning herd,

what you use for feed is extremely important. Holland lops and

Netherland dwarfs are among the most fragile and susceptible to

G.I. stasis, a condition in which the animal’s digestive tract stops

moving, often resulting in the animal’s

death. This is an avoidable issue with

proper nutrition. Hay is recommended, but

alfalfa should only be fed to babies up to 6

months old. We do not offer our animals

leafy greens because it has a lot of ties to causing G.I. stasis. The

more basic your rabbits’ diet is, the better.

After you have selected your animal and feed, it is time for the

work to start. I recommend spending an hour a day with your animal,

whether that be practicing posing, showmanship or just bonding.

You and your rabbit are a team, and when you go out on that

table, the judge will be able to see who works the hardest at home.

I love being able to wake up, walk into the barn, and work with my

show string. I enjoy being able to handle so many different types of

rabbits. They each have their own personality and quirks, and it is

your responsibility as the owner and showman to present your animal

to the best of your ability. When in the barn, I always like to

refer to the quote, “Your banners are won at home. You just pick

them up at the show.”

Rabbits are a fun project and great for those who do not have

the property for large livestock. While doing the project, I have

learned so much, not only pertaining to the show world of rabbits

but also breeding. Breeding rabbits is not often an easy task, but it

is very rewarding to see a doe kindle a litter of healthy babies. But

it does not always go that way. It can be hard. Does can be stubborn;

occasionally you will get one that is unfit for motherhood. But

once you get that live litter, it all goes out the window because now

you have babies and that is extremely rewarding. Having babies is

by far my favorite aspect of owning rabbits.

While rabbits can be challenging like any animal, the pros outweigh

the cons. Madison County 4-H offers several projects including

breeding rabbit, market rabbit and pet rabbit. The pet project

is a great introduction to showing rabbits for beginners. So, there

are several options and one for each person. I have personally enjoyed

breeding the most. All of the projects have their own information

to offer, and the Madison County Fair does a great job at

making rabbits a fun and enjoyable project.

Communicate, lead, be kind

By Haylee Henry

Madison County 4-H Alumni

Growing up, I was always looking for

what my purpose was going to be in life. It

wasn’t until I found myself in my first official

4-H meeting of the Speedy Spurs Livestock

4-H Club that I felt like I belonged

somewhere. I can remember the feeling of

acceptance I had sitting around a table full

of friends whose interests were similar to

my own.

Through my years in 4-H, I found myself

getting more and more involved in things

outside of my own 4-H club and interacting

at the state and national level. 4-H taught

me many life lessons, including how to be a

leader, how to communicate with others,

and how to be kind. I will cherish the time I

had growing up in 4-H and finding the

courage I needed to branch out of my comfort

zone.

Fast forward to now. I am a sophomore

at South Dakota State University in Brookings,

S.D. I am studying agricultural communications

and agricultural leadership. I

hope to use my degree to develop youth programs

in the agricultural industry and offer

opportunities to today’s youth to prepare

them for their future.

Haylee Henry (far right) reaches out to a blindfolded cohort during

4-H camp counselor training.

Growing up in a very supportive community inspired me to leave

what I have always known, branch out to another part of the country

and gain a new perspective on what the world looks like. I hope

to gain the skills I need to help develop and shape the future leaders

of our industry.

Always remember: Communicate, lead and be kind.

Let curiosity set your course

By Beverly Kinateder

Double L II 4-H Club member

For the past two years, I chose to complete

a self-determined project for 4-H. This

project is amazing because you can choose

to study anything in any capacity. Two

years ago, I did a self-determined project on

weather. I was curious about how the

weather was forecasted, so I interviewed a

weatherwoman at a large corporation and

learned from websites. She educated me on

how there are numerous factors that contribute

to determining the weekly forecast.

Last year, I decided to study the scientific

benefits of essential oils for my self-determined

project, as I was previously

interested in how essential oils can better

one’s health. Doing a self-determined project

helped me to dig deeper into this concept.

I interviewed two experts from

different essential oil companies and even

took an online course. I learned so much.

For example, did you know that lavender essential

oil is clinically proven to help people

relax and can even promote better sleep?

Though one does not need to become nearly

as involved in the research as I was, I had

chosen something that I was truly passionate

about, so it was very exciting for me. I

still use the information that I learned from

the self-determined project each day. Last year, Beverly Kinateder researched the benefits of essential

Being a 4-H Cloverbud is

the first part of your journey

with Ohio 4-H.

Whether you are continuing

as a Cloverbud in 2021

or moving on to participate

in 4-H projects, 4-H

has exciting things in

store for you.

Cloverbud members of the Buckeye Rangers 4-H

Club show off the “slime” they made during a club

meeting.

The Cloverbud program takes a non-formal approach

to helping youths in kindergarten through second grade

subject matter knowledge, and physical skills. As

youths begin their 4-H Cloverbud experience, they take

part in a unique blend of activities and opportunities

specially designed for their age level.

Membership eligibility Cloverbuds begins when a

child has reached the age of 5 and is enrolled in kindergarten

as of Jan. 1 of the

current 4-H year.

Cloverbuds participate

in a variety of fun and exciting

activities and community

service projects.

They can also participate

in county-wide day camps.

Cloverbuds are encouraged

to exhibit a display

from their club at the

county fair. Cloverbud exhibitions

are non-competitive

and for exhibition

only. Cloverbud “show-ntell”

is an example of how youths can feel a part of the

fair without being competitive. Participants receive

special ribbons.

This year’s Cloverbud “show-n-tell” is set for 7 p.m.

July 12 in the Della Selsor Building at the Madison

Chapter perseveres despite pandemic challenges

By Chrysten Kell

Madison-Plains FFA reporter

Over the last year, the Madison-Plains

FFA chapter has faced various challenges

due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as have

many other chapters, but we have still managed

to enjoy what we have experienced.

For example, our chapter’s secretary,

Caden Alkire, treasurer, Lucas Stephenson,

and reporter, Chrysten Kell, had successful

officer books.

Caden received a silver rating on his secretary

book. His book included records of all

chapter activities, meetings and correspondence.

Lucas received a gold rating on his

treasurer book, which holds all financial

records from our chapter. Chrysten, with

much help from her assistant reporter,

Brooke Edwards, earned a gold rating on

the reporter book. The book uses photos,

captions, and news and media prints to keep

a record of chapter activities. Each officer

did a great job with their books, and we are

proud of each of them.

Madison County Junior Fair

We were so thankful to have the 2020

Madison County Junior Fair still happen.

Multiple chapter members won grand

champion awards. Molly Barber, Alyson

Petee, Corey Cress and Dalton Cunningham

were named Showman of Showman for their

species.

Overall, considering the circumstances,

it was an excellent fair for Madison-Plains

FFA. We are proud of all the exhibitors that

stayed motivated and participated. We had

members exhibiting for almost every

species, including cattle (beef and dairy),

equine, goats, sheep, swine, rabbits, and

even some poultry exhibitors.

Career Development Events (CDE)

Our meat judging team place second in

the state of Ohio this year. Individually,

Mackenzie Dixon placed second, and Molly

Barber placed seventh. We are incredibly

proud of these two girls for all their hard

work and dedication.

We also had two teams compete in the

Parliamentary Procedure CDE. Parliamentary

procedure involves conducting a proper

business meeting that officers and members

follow. We had one advanced and one novice

team compete, and they did an excellent job.

We currently have members practicing

in general livestock, poultry, meat, and

equine judging competitions. Each of these

contests teaches FFA members valuable

skills, including how to correctly choose

good livestock and to identify different types

of tack, plants and breeds.

National Convention

At the 93rd National FFA Convention,

which had to be held online, a Madison-

Plains FFA alumnus was recognized for her

achievements. Mackenize Wilson earned an

American Degree in recognition of her outstanding

effort toward her SAE projects, her

leadership abilities, and her community involvement

during her four years with the

chapter. Fewer than 0.5 percent of all FFA

members earn their American Degree, making

this the highest honor an FFA member

can achieve. We take great pride in our FFA

members that work hard to receive their

American Degrees.

Other Activities

As a chapter, we hold three fundraisers

each year. Sadly this year, we could not hold

Students in the London FFA animal science class raised 45 broilers to be donated to the H.E.L.P. House for

their Thanksgiving Outreach. This is the 8th year, the chapter has completed this project.

FFA flock helps community

By Jaiden Ballah

London FFA member

As someone who has always been around livestock

growing up, I have many experiences with raising poultry.

When we began raising broilers as a class project

in our FFA class, I was very excited because this is

something I have been doing since the third grade.

Many of my classmates have not raised livestock before,

so it was exciting to see them learn and try new things.

From learning how to pick up a chicken to learning

about feed nutrition, we worked together and donated

a total of 245 pounds to H.E.L.P. house.

At the beginning of the project, the broilers were in

the ag shop for a few weeks. We then moved them into

the greenhouse behind London High School and began

our experiment. Each group was given 10 broilers and

a different brand of feed. Every week we kept track of

their weight and compared it to other groups. Over the

weeks we learned carcass grading and observed different

behaviors and how different feed affects muscle

growth. Before donating meat to HELP House, we gave

each bird an A, B, or C grade based on the different cuts

on the meat. At the end of the project, we donated all of

the meat to H.E.L.P. House for Thanksgiving.

Dana Snyder

London FFA advisor

Even as COVID-19 dominated our lives, members of

the London FFA did not let that stop them from serving

the community. Members volunteered more than 50

hours of service to H.E.L.P. House’s annual Thanksgiving

outreach.

While using safety protocols, members prepared

boxes of food needed for the dinner. Then on the outreach

day, they and other community volunteers distributed

meat, dairy, fresh produce and non-perishable

items to customers. The event served 175 families, totaling

659 individuals.

By Alli Moore

London FFA member

Members from the London FFA chapter competed in

the district ag sales Career and Leadership Development

event. Participants displayed their skills and

knowledge of business to sell an agriculture-related

product. London’s competitors included Cade Smith,

D.J. Covert, Addison Leach and Alli Moore. With the

event being virtual this year, competitors logged into a

Zoom meeting to complete the competition. The team

worked well together and overall had a successful competition,

placing third.

Dana Snyder

London FFA advisor

Each year, students in London High School’s “Intro

to Agriculture” have the opportunity to earn the Greenhand

Degree. This is the first degree a member may

earn in the FFA.

Requirements include learning about the history and

traditions of the National FFA Organization, including

recitation of the FFA creed.

London’s 2021 recipients of the Greenhand Degree

are: Jaden Baker, Izaiah Bates, Anna Caldwell, Eric

Clark, Ashley Coffey, Sarah Cooper, Harlie Evans,
