[AUG. 23, 2004]  Two members of the Lincoln FFA chapter attended FFA Leadership Camp July 28-31 at Allerton Park 4-H Memorial Camp in Monticello. There were 214 campers and 22 staff members in attendance from around the state.

During the four days, campers participated in a challenge course, Ag Olympics, a Hawaiian Harvest Festival and various other team competitions. Many special guests were present, including Butch Cotter, school superintendent at Pontiac; Dr. Morton Ford, a hypnotist; and representatives from the FFA Alumni and the Illinois Foundation FFA. The alumni sponsored a pork chop dinner, and the foundation helps provide funds to make camp possible. During the camp, FFA members learned teamwork, communication, and leadership skills that they could use to improve their chapters.

The FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of members by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
