    This summer the local Trimble County FFA went to FFA camp in Hardinsburg, Ky. It was the week of the 23-27 of July, which was a pretty hot week. During this week we worked on our communication skills, fished, canoed, made some new friends, team building skills on a ropes course, and even saw a hypnotist.

    We also had the opportunity to climb one of the oldest trees in Kentucky. The week was a very fun week. It was also a great memorable experience for our chapter.
