FFA year culminates in High Point trip
17 who participated in most activities enjoy the getaway

Memories were made and experiences were gained as Los Banos FFA rewarded its most involved members last week.
Seventeen hard-working and active students traveled to Shaver Lake-Camp Edison for this year's annual High-Point trip.
This trip is achieved by participating in the most FFA activities throughout the school year, such as conferences, the annual drive-through dinners and showing animals at the fair.
The members to go on the trip this year were Kaitlyn Alanis, Victor Avila, Paul Borba, A.J. Coronel, Adam Forte, Alexa Gong, Mackenzie Hurley, Morgan Hurley, Alyssa Luna, Jake Martin, Derek Neves, Haley Simmons, Bianca Soares, Christina Soares, Dylan Soares, Taylor Terry and Sydney Wooldridge.
The group had a blast hiking though the woods, fishing for trout, swimming in the lake and even participating in activities such as a water balloon war and snipe hunt. And at the end of the June 8-9 trip, the group gathered and reunited for a campfire and s'mores.
Los Banos FFA members would like to thank their advisers Mr. Bretz and Mr. McCullough, as well as their student teacher Ms. Souza for chaperoning the trip and for bringing the trip to its full potential. Without them, the trip would not have been possible.
They would also like to thank Los Banos Ag Boosters for their continuous support and for letting members celebrate a year's worth of work.
Each member came home with their own stories to tell and their own memories to last a lifetime. As a group, these members have come together to contribute to the success of Los Banos FFA.
