PINE PLAINS — Driven by the national FFA motto, “Learning to Do, Doing to Learn, Earning to Live, Living to Serve,” members of the Pine Plains FFA have made every effort to show their support for the local community while building essential leadership skills.

There are currently 35 active student members involved in the Pine Plains chapter of the FFA. The fall is one of the best seasons to witness students in action at the annual Ag Fair, though students consistently work to raise awareness of the organization throughout the year.
