Exeter FFA removes trash from Rocky Hill

EXETER– Exeter FFA jump-started the second semester with its second annual Rocky Hill beautification chapter meeting on Thursday, Jan. 17. Fifty members attended the outdoor event despite heavy rain and wind.

Beginning at the Agriculture Department, students watched the constitutional FFA Opening and Closing Ceremony performed by the Chapter Officers, then participated in an ice breaker during which students had the opportunity to make new friends within the chapter.

As dark clouds blanketed the city of Exeter, members and advisers were transported to the top of Rocky Hill and were provided rain ponchos donated from Elanco Animal Health. The view was spectacular, but students were unfortunately met with a more evident “gift.” Exeter FFA members were confronted with countless fast food containers, alcohol bottles and caps, numerous fire extinguishers and miscellaneous items at the start of their descent. Pastures were flocked with debris that couldn’t be retrieved and left to wander amongst cattle and rolling green hills.

Not long into their trek, Exeter FFA members were greeted with passersby who tooted their horns or waved with gratitude. Exeter FFA collected 27 bags of garbage on the shoulders of Rocky Hill. Because the character of Exeter is held within its citizens, the Exeter FFA Chapter encourages all to properly dispose of their trash in order to keep the surrounding foothills green, the streets clean, and citizens thriving.
