Members from the RTR FFA chap- ter attending were Jonah Johnson, Jackie Dressen, Ashley Borchert and Lacey Barke. The goal of State Green- hand Leadership Confer- ence is to give personal me.toting:: to- first-year high school FFA members. These members come from all corners of the state, rep- resent unique sectors of agriculture and have been recognized as top leaders in their schools. During the conference, students cover an array of topics during sessions that focus mostly on personal development. Goal setting, professional leadership and career exploration are just a few of the topics dis- covered during this five- day leadership camp. "State Greenhand Lead- ership Conference was an incredible week filled with opportunities for students to grow, build friendships and learn more about FFA," Minnesota FFA President PJ Aarsvold said. "Mem- bers took part in engag- ing sessions, heard from officers as they reflected on lessons they've learned through their life experi- ences and participated in team building activities at Deep Portage's facilities." FFA members had the opportunity to connect with different individuals outside of sessions dur- ing fun activities such as na volleyball, canoeing and hiking. Each night, the state officers shared per- sonal reflections with the campers, and the final day wrapped up camp with a banquet, talent show and dance. State Greenhand Lead- ership Conference serves the Minnesota FFA As- sociation by building tal- ented and young individu- als. These members often go on to become chapter, region and state leaders within their FFA chapters and communities. This leadership confer- ence was made possible with financial contribu- tions from the CHS Foun- dation, Northland Ford Dealers, Alliance Pipeline and Dr. Curtis Youngs as a special project of the Min- nesota FFA Foundation.

The Minnesota FFA Association Submitted photo represents nearly 11,000 members and almost 200 high school chapters across the state.

I hadn't been there in a long time, but what a nice place to eat now and the atmosphere and food was great. I would gladly recommend giving it a try--you won't be sorry. This past Wednesday I saw Dr. Geraets again. Af- ter taking pictures of my eye and testing it he said there is no swelling at all in the eye and that the vi- sion is about the same. So he gave me another shot in the eye and I will see him again in September unless I have problems. Spending a few days with her grandparents Bud and Lorna Beyers is Becky Evers of Shakopee. Diane Harding of Sioux Falls, S.D. spent most of the weekend at the home of her mother Dorothy LaBrune. They were on the go as they visited with Kathy at Tyler and also took in Saddle Horse Days at Lake Benton. When the storm passed through town last night the wind must have been very strong. My potted to- mato plants on the deck suffered and were in dis- tress this morning, so I had to tie them to stakes. Some residents had huge branches or trees down. The evergreens at the west and north protect my property from the wind. The best part of my day is my morning jog. However, I started having knee pain, so I spoke with an orthopedic physician. Together, we discussed treatment options that were right for me. I am now on the road to recovery and better jogs. :~ ......
