Caldwell County FFA received a donation Tuesday from two local civic organizations -- Caldwell County Farm Bureau and Princeton Optimist Club.

James Allen Boone, Kentucky Farm Bureau agent and Optimist Club member, and Optimist Club member Benji Kilgore were on hand for the presentations. Both contributions to the organization were a result of the Black Patch event in September 2019.

Farm Bureau's petting zoo booth had record-breaking donations of more than $1,000 from visitors. Both organizations will be presenting similar contributions to the Caldwell County 4-H Club later this month. Donations to Caldwell County FFA will help members transportation costs to various career development events throughout the school year.

Caldwell County FFA thanks all members of both organizations for their continuous support.
