At this year's homecoming game, played against the Borrego Springs Rams, during half time we announced the winners of this year's Hog Drawing. First place went to Becky Hatch, winning the main prize of a half of a hog. Second place went to the Booth Family, taking home the prize of an eight pound ham. Third place went to the Ramano Family, receiving the final prize of ten pounds of wholesome American Sausage. Our chapter made a profit of $350.00, which will be spent on this year's fair expenses. The top seller for our chapter, Lladira Gonzalez, a junior at Julian High Scl;}ool, will receive a complimentary lunch provided by our FFA. This month, our chapter put on our Annual Food and Clothing Drive which will go though till November 18th. All the food donated will be given to the San Diego Food Bank for families during the holiday season. The clothes donated will be given to the Wounded Warrior Foundation fo r all those in need. On November 5th, Vincent Pellegri, FFA State President, and Ben Granholm, FFA State Treasurer, visited our Ag. classes to show the student's leadership presentations and teach team building skills. We had lots of fun playing games and doing different team building activities. Although they were only here for one school day, they taught us skills we will use in our everyday lives. As we move on to the end of the year 2010, we hope the Julian FFA continues our success to the incoming year.
