The Bret Harte High School chapter of FFA hosted a Welcome Back Picnic on Sept. 6 for more than 200 FFA members, parents and boosters.

Participants were treated to a meal prepared by the Bret Harte FFA Boosters, followed by the first general meeting of the year, which was conducted by FFA chapter officers. Chapter members discussed participation in Ironstone Vineyard’s Concours d’ Elegance, Delta Cal opening and closing competition, Lumberjack Days in West Point, and the chapter’s annual Cow Pie Social, which will be held Oct. 15 at Ironstone.

While the FFA members conducted their meeting, the Bret Harte FFA Boosters hosted a parent informational meeting.
