The group holds several beneficial drives and participates in helping the community.
Rachael Bedford, President, says, “We need a lot more members, and we’ll be a lot more productive this year.”
When asked, what the responsibilities of an FCCLA president are, Rachael responds, “It’s pretty cool, but there’s so much to do like plan meetings and (events).”
Events coming up sponsored by FCCLA are Can’s for a Cause- Optimist Luncheon, the annual toy drive and clothing drive.
Also, FCCLA members will be going to a skating rink December 5. Mrs. Southard says all members are welcome and it will be during school hours.
