Published 10:24 am Thursday, August 3, 2017

Buckingham County Future Farmers of America (FFA) leadership members participated in the FFA Leadership Camp held at Graves Mountain Lodge in Syria on July 10-14.

Amanda Bryan, Dylan Price and April Sage enjoyed a weeklong camp focused on leadership, personal growth and career success. These members took home valuable skills in public speaking, teamwork and leadership that will help them be a successful member and officer of the FFA chapter.

Throughout the week, these students got to interact with FFA members from around the state along with the past and current Virginia FFA State Officers. Not only did the camp include leadership workshops and group events, they completed various community service projects in Madison County and enjoyed an evening at the Madison County Fair. Also, at the Camp Awards Banquet, Bryan was recognized as the Advanced II Outstanding Member.

Buckingham County Girl Scouts are accepting kindergarten through eighth-grade girls and adult volunteers to join the scouting journey. At girl scouts, girls are always counting down to the next adventure they will go on together. Maybe it’s artistic, maybe it’s an experiment or maybe it’s getting outside or helping the community. Girl scouts always make a bunch of new friends and have a ton of new experiences that show how exciting the world is and how awesome each girl scout is over and over again.

Girl scouts build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. For more information, contact Deidre Kellner, membership manager, via email at, call (434) 382-8013 or visit
