Thanks from local FFA chapter

To the Editor:

On behalf of the members of the Miami East-MVCTC FFA Chapter, I would like to thank Troy Main Street for allowing our FFA members to participate in their weekly farmers markets on Cherry Street. For many years, the partnership between the farmers market and its customers has allowed our FFA members to develop their entrepreneurship skills and improve upon their FFA Supervised Agricultural Experience Programs. Countless FFA members have participated in the market and reach much success in their business and in FFA award opportunities.

Within the past four years, four Miami East-MVCTC FFA members have been named National FFA Proficiency Finalists (Top 4 in the nation) due, in part, to their participation and success at the Troy Main Street Farmers Market. Additionally, numerous members have been recognized at the state and district levels for their small business successes. We thank you for the opportunity to be involved in our community and to develop lifelong business skills. Thank you!

We welcome everyone to join our FFA members at the next market. The market on Cherry Street will be open 9 a.m. to 12 noon every Saturday through Oct. 7. We hope to see you there!

— Kylie Blair, president
