The Seven Lakes FFA has 103 chapter members who participate in an array of competitions throughout the National FFA Association. From livestock raising and showing to career and leadership development events, Seven Lakes members compete across the state of Texas, and now across the country. As a chapter, we dedicate hours of community service and participate in many activities to develop the unbreakable bonds that FFA is known for creating. One of our favorite chapter activities is the Ag Olympics, a fun competition against other district chapters with a series of team tasks.
At that time I knew the now-dead 1960′s Beat poet Ted Jones* at some of the places like Le Dome, La Coupole; he was trying to sell his archives to a US university to get money to live on. * We were introduced by a man who lived on a private street in the 14ième and gave “rent parties”–but to raise money (then) for Poland. Years later I mentioned this man’s name to a nice woman, much more comfortably off than I, who was on the Board of a philharmonic orchestra with me — and she knew him from college in Edinburgh, years priorly. Paris IS a Moveable Feast.
