Naselle FFA officers plan the chapter's year

Naselle FFA Chapter officers recently went on a Columbia River paddle trip as an exercise in team building.

NASELLE - Recently the Naselle FFA chapter officers went on a canoe trip to plan their activities for the year and to learn how to work better as a team. Joining us were two Washington state FFA officers, who helped in the planning process.

The Naselle FFA officers this year are Jacki Stanley, president; Jamie Ahlstrom, vice president; Daniel White, treasurer; Rebecca Johnson, secretary; Mary Frank, reporter. Ken Emo is the FFA advisor.

The beginning of the trip started at the Comets' Cafe. We had to order lunch for ourselves and the state officers. Then we went to meet up with the rest of our crew.

Our crew was led by Brad Herring, owner of Sanctuary Canoe trips and his assistant, Sarah Beuhler.

They led us about five miles down a river into the great Columbia River. Here we saw two large ships on either side of us. We turned around and went back.

On the trip we learned to row as a team. We also learned about the local natives, the trees, herbs, and more. After the great trip, the state officers followed us back to the Comets' Cafe where our lunches waited. After lunch, we headed off to the Timberland Library where we proceeded to plan some exciting activities for the year.

Students who attended our first FFA meeting held Oct. 16 included: Jeremy Ray, Reese Moore, Missy Lorton, Sandra Rogdriguez, Cheryl Steppe, Kristina Chism, Erin Saari, Whitney Queral, Megan Kato, Sunny Trent, Juanita Gonzalez, Brandy Stoeff, Erinn Reimann, Michael Perez, Michael Hurst, Spencer Griss, Garrick Bennett, and Wryan Anderson.
