On the first day of school for the Charles City FFA kids, they started to plan their yearly Veteran’s Day Program – and immediately they knew the virus was going to interfere with it. That’s why they pivoted to a YouTube video version of the program.
The FFA Veteran’s Day Program is going to be broadcasted on 95.9 KCHA from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Wednesday and is sponsored by Cambrex in Charles City. FFA Teacher Jim Lundberg says that making the event virtual allowed the kids to create an event with a pretty unique guest speaker.
Lundberg says the program will incorporate the speakers that the event has had in the past – including local clergy, the mayor, and of course the guest speaker.
