The Lawton FFA will team up with surrounding FFA chapters to host a pie auction Friday, Feb. 1 to raise both money for future events and celebrate the students’ hard work.

 The event will be from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Great Plains Coliseum Expo Building, 920 SW Sheridan Road. It is free to attend and will include homemade desserts ranging from $10 to $100, a chili cook-off, and activities for all ages.

Courtney Miller, FFA adviser and agriculture teacher at Lawton High, noted that this is one of the biggest events annually and is a great way to raise money towards future trips, contests and other scholastic opportunities for students.

“Ever since I was around 4 or 5 I knew I wanted to be a teacher,” she said. “I was an FFA student throughout high school, and seeing the big impacts I was able to make really inspired me to be an FFA sponsor.”

On Saturday, Feb. 2, the FFA will also host its annual local livestock show from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Great Plains Coliseum. This event kicks off FFA Week, a whole week dedicated to FFA members and the work they’ve done throughout the year. The livestock show is also free to the public and will include a variety of farm animals such as goats, beef cattle, dairy cows, hogs and sheep.
