This October, you can make a special October memory with your kids by creating these fun Boo-nana Ghost Pops and have them waiting for an after school snack.

The L.A. County Fair has come around again. As a Chapter, we were able to take a group of awesome freshmen to take part in a scavenger hunt on Sept. 20. As a freshman last year, a few of my fellow officers and I had an amazing time wandering around the fair and learning new things about agriculture. We made new friends, helped each other out, and were able to complete the scavenger hunt by the end of the first half of the day. Afterwards, we were able to have a great time at fair with all the venders, and other members of FFA.
