VERSAILLES — A group of Versailles senior citizens were the recipients of “treats” for Halloween thanks to local FFA members.

On Thursday, Oct. 29, the Versailles FFA participated in its own National Day of Service as part of the National FFA convention by making and delivering care packages.

Versailles FFA delivered 40 care packages to the Versailles Senior Center occupants. The bags contained oranges, bananas, homemade hot vegetable soup, winter hats, activity books, calendar magnets, popcorn, string cheese, yogurt, applesauce, cheese crackers, muffins, chips, and a handwritten card.

The members who participated in this event were Jacob Mescher, Zoe Billenstien, Andrew Wuebker, Laura Wuebker, Griffon Miller, Paige Gasson, Jamie Holscher, Greg Dirksen and Matthew Subler.

A special thanks to Eric Biggs of State Farm Insurance for donating the hat, pen, activity books and calendar books, and thank you to Angie Cromwell for helping arrange the visit. Thanks to the Versailles FFA members who help donate items and Delany Barga for having the idea and writing the notes.
