KEYA PAHA FFA BANQUET – THURSDAY, APRIL 25, 2019, 6:30 – 9:30 PM – RSVP TODAY!
This year we are excited to announce that two of the Peterson Farm Brothers will be our featured guest speakers!  The following is their bio from their website:

“The Peterson Farm Bros are made up of Greg (28), Nathan (25), Kendal (22), and honorary “bro” Laura (18) Peterson. We are siblings who farm together with our parents near Assaria, KS. We produce entertaining and educational videos on our YouTube channel and post farming and video updates to our social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram). Ever since we began producing content, we have continued to realize a need to inform people about what we do in farming and in agriculture as a whole. There are many misconceptions about modern-day farmers and we feel it is our calling to help correct some of those misconceptions…” 

Please RSVP by emailing Mrs. Trahan, etrahan@kpschools.org, or call 402-497-3501 to reserve your spot today!  We will be having a silent auction for small horseshoe projects and work auction.  The banquet will be held in the KPCS High School gym.
