The 2022-2023 Marais des Cygnes Valley FFA Chapter Officers took advantage of building leadership and personal growth opportunities by spending three days, July 26-28, 2022, in Omaha, Neb.

The three days were spent enhancing their leadership skills, bonding as a team, enhancing their personal growth, and organizing a program of activities for the year. The officers spent their first day going on a drive through Safari and got settled into their house for the next few days. On the first day, officers walked around the Old Market. Officers had bought ice cream there as well. That first night the officer team went to an escape room at the House of the Conundrum to work on teamwork.

On the second day, the officers worked on the program of activities before spending the day at the Omaha Zoo. That night they had spent time around the campfire talking about enhancing personal growth.

On the last day of the retreat, the officers saw the Holy Family Shrine located in Gretna, Neb. The architecture of this Catholic Church was beautiful and very unique.

This year’s officer team is Lindsey Johnson, president; Olivia Lacey, vice president; Kelsey Rice, secretary/treasurer; Alyssa McCurdy, reporter; and Olivia Lacey, sentinel. The officers are thrilled about getting the year off to a great start. They have some incredible development activities planned for the chapter members and community. Some of those activities include the annual organization luau, SAE member tour, Seitz Sales, elementary agriculture presentations, walk-in movie nights, highway cleanup, Ag Awareness Day, and of course FFA Week.
