FFA officers (Decker Nielson, Taylor Johnson, Jon Davies, Daniel Jensen, Shania Steele, Ashlynn Johnson, Mikayla Nusink, Derek Tidwell) with the decorated tree.

Maple Mountain FFA gave the “Gift of Love” to the children of Primary Children’s Medical Center by donating a tree to the Festival of Trees.  Members of the FFA came up with a Country-time Christmas theme and raised money to decorate the tree.  Stars, bells, barbwire, ribbon, wood, and hand tooled ornaments adorned the tree. Officers and members spent time making ornaments, wrapping presents, or preparing the tree. We would like to thank all of those sponsors who donated items toward our tree and made our contribution a success. The tree sold for $1,010 to an auto dealer in Salt Lake. The FFA truly felt of the magic of the Festival of Trees by being a part of such a great way to help those in need.
