COSHOCTON – On Aug. 2 the River View FFA held a corn roast at Coshocton’s First Friday on Main Street. The members roasted corn over an open fire and accepted donations for the corn they made. Many people generously donated because they had been in FFA or had relatives who have been involved in FFA. They ended up selling almost all of the corn, which was donated by Louis Mizer.

Over the summer, two FFA officers also attended the Washington Leadership Conference. They stayed at the Holiday Inn Dulles Aug. 9-13, while they attended the conference.
