The past few months Mora FFA has been busy with career development events, service projects, college and industry tours. 

In November members traveled to Princeton High School to compete in the Milk Quality and Small Engines competitions. 

Small Engines participants included Eric Telander and Gavin Barnick. Milk Quality included Brandi Wellnitz, Annabel McGriff, Lauryn Showers, Morgan Nordaune, Kate Anderson, Ryleigh Rodenborg and Bridget Nolan. 

In December they were busy with the annual cookie decorating for the residents at St. Clares. Students decorated 70 holiday cookies to spread cheer to the residents. They enjoy being able to bring a smile and some sweetness to the residents. 

The same week Mora FFA traveled to Fargo, North Dakota, to tour the CASE IH plant, NDSU then stayed overnight and competed in career development events the following morning. 

During the CASE tour students got to see the ins and outs of building a tractor. From the robotic welders; state of the art robotic plasma cutters and what it takes to work at such a facility. 

Students on this trip included Kennedy Klink, Bridget Nolan, Morgan Nordaune (Floriculture) Annabell McGriff, Lauryn Showers, Brandi Wellnitz, Tayven Peterson and Eric Telander (Ag Mechanics). 

Mora FFA had members competing at the University of Minnesota Invitational in extemporaneous speaking and small animals. 

Ria Edberg made her first Leadership Development Event appearance with extemporaneous speaking and Lauryn Showers performed well at the small animals contest.
