Butte Valley FFA Corned Beef & Cabbage Feast

The Butte Valley FFA Chapter currently has 62 energetic members diligently preparing for leadership conferences and competition trips this year.  Although our chapter is small, we endure the same registration costs per member for these events as California’s large chapters, along with travel and hotel fees. Butte Valley FFA is one of the northern-most chapters in the state of California and at times travel up to 688 miles to a leadership conference or competition. We are also starting a new Agriscience Pathway with brand new classes including Sustainable Agricultural Biology, Agricultural Science, and plans for a Floriculture class on top of our established Agricultural Mechanics Pathway. All of which need funding for class supplies promoting hands-on education for our students.

As you can see, the students, parents, and advisers of Butte Valley FFA have committed to providing our members and students with the highest level of agricultural education possible. So, join us for the 1st Annual Butte Valley FFA “ Corned Beef and Cabbage Feast” on March 17, 2020, 5:30 pm at Butte Valley Community Center (Log Cabin) in Dorris, CA. The dinner comprises a yummy ‘luck of the Irish’ meal, corn hole tournament with custom FFA boards for the winners, a give-and-get drawing, silent auction containing some of our students’ projects, and dessert dash.  All proceeds will be benefiting our students at Butte Valley FFA.

Butte Valley Museum and Historical Society Seeks Support to Repaint One of Mills Historic Water Towers

The Butte Valley Museum and Historical Society is hoping to raise funds needed to repaint the 130 foot water tower on their museum property, a historical mill site. For many years, the water tower has been defaced with graffiti, and in a community beautification effort the organization plans to hire Handsome Hand Signs artist, Heidi Tullman (of Etna CA), to clean up and recreate the natural metallic rust and add a mural representing the Butte Valley Museum and Historical Society’s logo.

If you would like to help in the fundraising effort, please contact Rennie Cleland, board president at 530-260-1147.
