From left, Artesia FFA vice president Maegan Lemon, treasurer Madison Callaway, secretary Alexis Montgomery, and sentinel Taylor Scott pose with Mayor Phil Burch Monday at City Hall as he signs a proclamation recognizing Feb. 17-24 as National FFA Week in Artesia. “FFA and agricultural education provide a strong foundation for the youth of America and the future of the food, fiber and natural resources systems … and the FFA motto ‘learning to do, doing to learn, earning to live, living to serve,’ gives direction of purpose to these students who take an active role in succeeding in agricultural education,” the proclamation reads. The Artesia FFA chapter will hold its annual Pie Supper from 3-6 p.m. today at the Artesia High School ag shop. The community is invited to have a piece of pie and tour the new welding shop. The FFA Pardners will hold an office furniture auction to support the chapter with a preview beginning at 10 a.m. and the auction at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 24, at the Eddy County Fairgrounds. The contents of a recently-relocated energy company will be auctioned, including desks, chairs, file cabinets, bookshelves, and much more. There are no minimums, and all sales are final.
