Attention Boy Scouts, FFA members

The Jennings Daily News would like to honor area kids who do what they can to help their communities – scouts honor.

That’s why we are calling on all local Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts to share their pictures and stories with us for a special publication in your hometown newspaper.

The Boy Scout program develops character, citizenship and personal fitness, so why wouldn’t the Jennings Daily News want to highlight those outstanding traits for all of its readers to appreciate?

Oh, and we didn’t forget the girls! Area scouts, boys and girls, are encouraged to send in their pictures and project reports to the Jennings Daily News by mail (P.O. Box 910, Jennings, 70546) or by email (jdne...@bellsouth.net) by Friday, Feb. 1, in order to be included in the special tribute.

But wait, there’s more!

National FFA Week is right around the corner, and the Jennings Daily News would also like to recognize area Future Farmers of America members.

FFA’s agricultural education provides a strong foundation for the youth of America and the future of the food, fiber and natural resources systems, while it also promotes premier leadership, personal growth and career success among its members.

In addition, agricultural education and the FFA ensure a steady supply of young professionals to meet the growing demands in the science, business and technology of agriculture.

With all of this said, the Jennings Daily News wants to recognize our community’s future farmers of America by publishing a special tribute to FFA leaders in February, as well. But in order to successfully honor the organization and its members’ ongoing efforts, we need FFA advisors and officers to send in their club news, photos and list of upcoming fundraisers and events – just in time for National FFA Week.

Simply mail or email us club news and photos (to the addresses listed above) and we’ll print the news in our upcoming tribute. Deadline for FFA submissions is Wednesday, Feb. 8.

So scouts and FFA members/leaders, please help us honor you all for all that you have done and continue to do. Share your club news with us today!
