A late February blizzard didn't stop Maroa-Forsyth FFA members from talking with local farm broadcaster Jared White Wednesday afternoon as a part of National FFA Week.

Reed Jostes is the chapter's secretary and says this week was halted because of the Wednesday snow day but they have loaded week of things happening within the chapter.

FFA Week is meant to promote Future Farmers of America and Jostes indicates he definitely receives more feedback during this week as opposed to other times of the year because of everything going on.

Jostes indicates their chapter has been taking tours of agriculture based businesses like ADM in Decatur. He says it is a great opportunity for them and appreciates the business community for getting behind them and welcoming to their businesses.
