Farm Safety Camp
The Farm Safety Day Camp has become a tradition in our community to educate young children about many topics ranging from lawn mower, power take off, tractor, sun, first aid, fire, gun, water, and ATV safety. Each station run by our officers ensures hands on learning and experience. At the end of the lessons, a short puppet and video show is put on to recap the information. Each kid is sent home with a t-shirt and goodie bags of equipment to ensure safety. This camp is a memorable time for all with unmeasurable rewards. The Central Lyon FFA and The Lyon County ISU Extension team up to prevent one accident at a time.
Ronald McDonald House
The Ronald McDonald House is a temporary living building where families are provided with meals, living space, and aid while a family member is currently in the hospital. This relieves many of stress and worry dealing with money and other pressures. The Central Lyon FFA provides our help by cooking a meal, cleaning, and buying supplies for the residents there. Many of the work done there is volunteer based and we are proud to be a part of it.
Operation Feed the Farmers
This project was started to thank our local farmers with a free meal while they work. Central Lyon FFA members spend the day assembling meals and distributing them throughout the area. The simple meal may seem small, but it has made a positive impact in many farmer's lives. Overall, a minimum of 100 meals gets into the hands of hungry farmers out in the field. Giving out those brown packages and seeing the eager smiles makes the tedious tasks of putting the meal together worth it.
Atlas is our local community resale store where furniture, clothing, and other miscellaneous products are available at low cost purchases. This gives many families in the surrounding area a chance to obtain items they need without struggling for money. This organization relies on mainly donations from generous people, but moving furniture and numerous items can become a hassle. The FFA helps many times by moving as much as they can and organizing products.
The Central Lyon FFA does a lot of side jobs that has earned us a trustworthy service in our community. From helping build houses to cleaning up after the fair, many people take gratitude in our work. If it wasn't for the small acts of others, many things would not be possible. This organization teaches its members the time old tradition of paying back and the lessons of sacrifice. Many of these small acts of kindness shape the future into a better place for all.
