Warner FFA holds hay drive for farmers affected by wildfire
HAY DRIVE--The Warner FFA Chapter in Oklahoma recently held a hay drive to benefit farmers affected by wildfires in Creek County. (Photo courtesy of Warner FFA.)
The fires that broke out in early August tore through Creek County, Okla., with no remorse, destroying over 58,000 acres of land. To help the local farmers the Warner FFA Chapter got together and asked the residents in the area to donate at least one bale of hay. Many people were happy to donate a bale or more, and altogether we had 37 bales donated. Those who could donate had a week to make arrangements on getting their hay to Warner Public Schools on either Aug. 17 or 18.
The men and women that donated were: Rod Burress, Tony Burress, John And Jenette Buse, Mark Calavan, Tom Croftcheck, Phil Harris, Bobby Herriman, Kevin Howard, Rick Hubler, Jackson Brothers Cattle Company, Kevin McBride, Kevin Mckinney, Don Miller, Ralph Moses, Robert Plunkett, Speck Plunkett, Roy Rains, Bill Rogers, J.D. Rogers, Phil And Sandy Ross, Stephanie Sellers, Ken Silver, T.A. Staton, Jason Synar, Billy Taylor, Dr. Gary Updyke, Mike Wittmer, and Stephen Wright. The Warner FFA chapter gives thanks to them and the ranchers in Creek County give a big thanks to everyone. Of the 28 donors there were some who donated water, a tractor, and diesel to help make the trip.
