On July 8 the Estancia Future Farmers of America Chapter held its annual officers’ training. The meeting was held at Capilla Peak, and a picnic lunch was enjoyed by all of the 2016-17 Chapter Officers, which include Daniel Lujan as President, Anne Everett as Vice President, Andrew Lujan as Secretary, Matthew Lindeman as Reporter, Arliss Corliss as Treasurer, and Luke Pope Chaplain. Chapter Sentinel- Lucas Fastnacht was not in attendance.

During the meeting we discussed how to make our chapter work together, grow in scope and knowledge and established an Officer Vision for the Chapter Officer team. At the end of the meeting on the way down the mountain the officers scaled a 15-foot rock face to take the officers’ photo.
