Chamber of Commerce Breakfast
The Chamber of Commerce Breakfast focuses on agriculture and its importance within the community. Themed “Agriculture Is Everyone’s Business,” the event provided guests with information, knowledge, and fellowship opportunities involving agriculture. The event was held on January 18th, 2013.
To help prepare for the event, members of the Hillsboro FFA Chapter grew plants in their greenhouse to provide centerpieces, and also helped set up the event. During this event, eleven members of the Hillsboro FFA Chapter served breakfast to members of the agricultural community in Highland County. FFA members also participated in the event by listening to speakers, including District 9 FFA President Carley Snider, the Director of the Ohio Department of Agriculture Dave Daniels, and American broadcaster Orion Samuelson. These phenomenal speakers, and the Chambers event altogether, provided an educational experience and service opportunity for members of the Hillsboro FFA Chapter.
The Chamber of Commerce Breakfast not only impacted the Hillsboro FFA Chapter, but had a huge effect on multiple people throughout the community. Efforts, provided by multiple sources, helped support, fund, and provide all other service to make the event a successful and enjoyable affair.
