Novinger, Mo. — This week is National FFA Week.
The Future Farmers of America is an organization that strives for student interest in agricultural subjects.
Despite the weather forcing some events to be rescheduled, the celebrations were in full swing Thursday morning with a free pancake breakfast for Novinger and surrounding communities.
Novinger agriculture teacher Allie Smith told us that FFA members arrived around 5 a.m. at the Novinger R-1 High School to start cooking the food.
We spoke with FFA Chapter President Bailey Williams and Chapter Vice President Brady Farris about why they put this event together.
"So it is National FFA week, we are holding this breakfast to say thank you to the community. We open it to everyone and it's completely free," said Williams.
The celebrations and events continue this week with a petting zoo and games for kids and it’s open to the general public as well.
The petting zoo will be held Friday Feb. 22 at the Novinger School from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
