On Dec. 16, Silex FFA held their Christmas FFA Party at the Duggan’s Constructions Shop.
Silex FFA had a great turnout at the Christmas party. Silex FFA members got to eat a lot of homemade holiday foods and played many games.
Members also brought “gag gifts” and played rob your neighbor with Christmas presents. Members had good laughs, good food and great memories were created.
