Nowadays so many people live in urban areas, that we tend to forget about all of the farming communities that thrive throughout our country. This week is Future Farmers of America Week, a time to give thanks to our current farmers while looking forward and supporting the future generations of agriculturists.
Did you know…
Future Farmers of American (FFA) began in 1928 by a small group of farmers
Now there are around 700,0000+ youth members
FFA Week began in 1948, recognizing George Washington’s background as an agriculturist and farmer
It was formed “to prepare future generations for the challenges of feeding a growing population”
These future generations recognize that farming encompasses many other fields, such as biology, chemistry & engineering
Have you ever seen pictures of the extravagant Mardi Gras parades and wondered what exactly it is that they are celebrating? Is it just an excuse to have a wild parade and to party all day? Not at all- there is actually quite a bit of history behind this fanciful day:
Dating back to perhaps the 1st century BC, Christian countries have been celebrating Mardi Gras
Other names for this day: Shrove Tuesday, Fat Tuesday (the English translation of Mardi Gras)
It is the day before Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent
Celebrated as the last day of indulgence before the fasting season of Lent begins
