McArthur FFA Minute
McArthur FFA Reporter
Contrary to belief I the apple pie sale is still on November
15th, and this year it’s going to be the 11th year the sale has
been going on. The pies are going to be $11 each and if you
would like to buy one you can contact a McArthur FFA member or
call the Ag department at 530-336-5952. The pick up time for
pies is 10 AM to 3 PM at the Intermountain fairgrounds. The pie
sale is McArthur FFA,s main fundraiser for the year. The money
raised goes to help pay for leadership conferences, new
supplies, and career development events. Every year the Ag
Leadership class organizes the fundraiser. The process for
making the pies is that on Thursday before the sale students get
together in the afternoon and premeasure all of the dry
ingredients for the pie dough and the apple mix. On Friday
during class the Ag mech students go to the Ingram Hall and lay
black plastic down so during the making process the ingredients
spilt can be cleaned up easily at the end of the sale.
Vote for Your Favorite

is to afford the children of our community a chance to voice
their preference of books during the upcoming election season.
Thus providing them with some understanding of the election
process and to hopefully sprack a life long interest. Second is
to allow the library to compile a comprehensive list of the
favorite books selected by our patrons which can be provided
upon request to those wishing to make donations of bound books.
Vote during regular library hours, on Fall River Valley Library
Facebook page, or email fallriverlibrary@ frontiernet.net with

will be picked up at 6:00 p.m. on Tueday November 4th.
Lassen/Plumas Lifts Fire
