The Leoti FFA kicked off it's fiftieth year by creating a booth at the Wichita County Fair. Thanks to the Wichita County Museum, we were able to copy the group photos of almost all of the members since 1955. Curt Walk, who was a charter member of 1955 and also was the group's Reporter, graciously let us borrow his FFA jacket to display. Rebecca Smith, who recently graduated, also loaned her jacket for the booth. We set up a table with golden, star-shaped sticky notes, to invite anyone who had been involved with the local chapter to sign their name, the years of participation and then to stick the star up on the display. The former members came through for us. Among the stars we found Charles Smades, who was a chartered member; Roger Hamilton, who was the adviser from 1962 to 1966; Bob Wiles, who was the Kansas State Star Farmer in 1966; and we also had a star who is a star in many ways, Steve Tasker, who played pro football for a number of years for the Buffalo Bills! Our group won a blue ribbon for their efforts. Many thanks go to Lena Biel, who is the current chapter President and Rebecca Smith for their many hours of work.
