Letters from the mailbag: Week of March 2

Please, make show your support for the Agriculture program and FFA; write letters to or call your school board members and administration, voice your support at the next School Board meeting - before it is too late! We need the agriculture program in this community; we need to keep it and Mandi Millen so they can continue to make such a positive impact on the lives of so many of our students.

Thank you, from the Caz Fireman's Auxiliary

To the editor:

The Cazenovia Fireman's Auxiliary would like to thank all of the businesses and individuals that donated raffle prizes for our annual bowling tournament. We appreciate your continued support throughout the years. Our tournament was a huge success and we couldn't have done it without the generous donations and support. Thank you.

FFA is important to Cazenovia students

To the editor:

The Cazenovia Central School District, as you may know, must make various budget cuts to make up for an alleged 1.6 million dollar deficit. The budget cuts are posing a very serious threat to the agricultural program; the Cazenovia FFA and agriculture classes could be eliminated. If the "Cazenovia Aggies" don't have an agriculture program it may mean that some students will not be able to receive their Agricultural Sequence. An agricultural sequence can replace a language sequence, which awards students a New York State Advanced Regents diploma.

More than 11,000 FFA advisors and agriculture teachers deliver an integrated model of agricultural education, providing students with innovative and leading-edge education, enabling them to grow into competent leaders. If you have ever been in involved in any sort of agricultural class, career, activity, program or simply believe that agricultural education is important to the youth of Cazenovia, we (the Cazenovia FFA Chapter) are asking you to please write to the Cazenovia Board of Education to voice your support of the Caz Ag program.
