Felicity-Franklin FFA works booths at Felicity Gourd Festival

Dedicated Felicity-Franklin FFA members worked at the Felicity Gourd & Harvest Festival, which made its return this year in Felicity.

Students served food and drinks to visitors at the festival and also set up two games for the younger crowd: the fish toss, the classic game of festivals, where kids can win a goldfish; and Hillbilly Jail, in which a student could pay to put their friend in jail for 10 minutes, unless the friend paid to get out.

In addition to the booths the chapter also operated, the alumni counterpart to Felicity-Franklin FFA hosted a Cow Pie Bingo on the second day of the festival.

Cow Pie Bingo involved squares drawn on a parking lot, with each square a designated ticket number.

Wherever the cow “pie” landed, the buyer of the square would receive $250, and the seller of the ticket would receive $25.

These activities drew in a big crowd and contributed to chapter funds for community service and student leadership trips.
