On April 4, 2023 The Racine Southern FFA Chapter hosted their Annual Petting
Zoo and Easter Egg Hunt event. Every year the chapter hosts this event to inform the
grades Headstart through third grade about FFA and agriculture through the fun egg
hunt and interactive petting soon for the kids. Each grade level previously listed was
scheduled for a specific time to participate in the occasion. FFA members brought in all
different kinds of animals--snake, sugar glider, hampster, newly hatched chicks, day old
calf, goat, chickens, guinea, turkey, rabbit, ducks, just to name a few.
The grades went through the petting zoo first, then walked over to Southern
Local’s football field for the easter egg hunt. There was a golden egg hidden
somewhere in the field for each grade level. A special prize was given out to the
individual who found the golden egg, which was a large chocolate bunny provided by
the Easter Bunny! All grade levels seemed to really enjoy the event and its always one
that the FFA chapter looks forward to hosting every year!
We would also like to give a big shoutout to all of our sponsors this year that
helped make this event a success: Weaving Stitches, Clara Jewelery, Just Hair, Wendy's, People's Bank, Grueser & Associates Accounting, Tricia McNickle, and The Local Butcher.
