Two members of the Greenbrler East FFA Ct~pter have been nomi. nated for the American FFA Degree, Theyl~are Carolyn Johnson daughter of Mr and Mrs David Johnson Jr, of Renick, and Brad Montgomery (right), son of Mr and Mrs John Montgomery of Roncev- erte. Carolyn and Brad will receive their American FFA Degree at the National FFA Convention at Kansas City, Missouri, November 9. The American FFA Degree is the highest degree in the FFA and tess than two per cent of members meet the requirements. Brad was also awarded the West Virginia Star Agribusiness Person award and will travel to Springfield, Massachusetts, in September to compete in the Eastern State Exposition Star Agribusiness Competition. The candi- dates were presented during a ceremony July 14. Pictured with the candidates is Jason Hughes, State President and also candidate for the American FFA Degree. Three members of the Greenbrier East FFA Chapter were honored with the second highest degree, the State FFA Degree at the State FFA Convention at Cedar Lakes in a ceremony July 14. Those mem- bers receiving the degree were (left to right), Carl Godby, son of Mr and Mrs Frank Godby of Aiders•n; Jack Morgan, son of Mr and Mrs Joe Morgan of Caldwell; Jamie Hunter, son of Mrs Barbara Hunter of Ronceverte. To attain the State FFA Degree, a member must achieve certain minimum qualifications.

Barry Level Ends Duties Ginseng Season Begins August 15 Barry Level completed his otficia: officer duties at the State FFA Convention held at Cedar Lakes. Barry is the son of Pat and Lola Level of Organ Cave. During the past year Barry has donated 56 days and driven over 9000 miles in performing FFA activities. Barry is the past president of the Greenbrier East FFA Chapter. He is now a sophomore at Potomac State College, where he is also employed on the college dairy farm. Barry received a Retiring State Officer Plaque in a cere- mony July 14. The West Virginia ginseng harvest season for 1990 began August 15 and ends November 30. All persons wishing to buy and sell West Virginia ginseng out of state must be registered by the West Virginia Division of Forestry. "Those persons who wish only to dig the ginseng and sell to properly registered dealers need not be registered them- selves," Forester William Gillespie said. All ginseng must be weighed and certified before leaving the State, There are 16 weighing sta- tions throughout the state manned by Division of Forestry personnel. Further information may be obtained by calling 348-2788. "If you are caught with non-weight receipted or uncertified ginseng in your possession, you can be arrested and fined. Fines range from $200 to $6,000, including possible imprisonment," accord- ing to Mr Gillespie. August and family reunions go together like peanut butter and jelly. Years ago there was little reason for family reunions. Ma and Pa got married and settled down on or near the fam- ily farm. Children grew up spending almost as much time at the homes of grandparents as they did at their own home. There were aunts and uncles liv- ing nearby and a whole passel of cousins to play with. Occasionally a family mem- ber broke rank and moved to the midwest and some even to Cali- fornia. Once in a great while one even married an alien and moved clear across the ocean such as one of my paternal great aunts who moved to France. However, most lived nearby. Then every child knew their kith and kin from great grand par- ents to the youngest sixth cousin. It has often been said that we are a restless people and the Sec- ond World War certainly opened our eyes to the fact that the world wos bigger than our little farms and villages. Wan- derlust together with the need for jobs became apparent and West Virginians began to seek their fortunes elsewhere. Trips back home were not very satisfactory as there was never enough time to visit ev- eryone and besides these trips seldom coincided with visits of other relatives you wanted to see. Parent's soon observed that their children knew Uncle Bill only as'a picture and they had no idea who cousin Molly was. Thus the family reunion was in- vented. August, with it's bounti- ful harvest of garden-fresh vege- tables, was the perfect time for such a gathering. Relatives begin to arrive a few days before reunion day. Some come in campers, some ill vans, some book motel rooms while others call to say have you got a spare bed not yet spoken for. {viy family scorn the catered meal and care little for the baked beans and potato salad offered WEST VIRGINIA STATE HOLSTEIN SALE At the Fairgrounds Lewisburg, West Virginia SATURDAY, AUGUST 18,2:00 PM 50 REGISTERED HOLSTEINS Featuring daughters of outstanding AI sires such as Mark, Sexation, Trifecta, Blackstar, Micheal Bell, Valiant, Chairman, and others.
