'Cedar Lakes is our home': FFA members give cottages a fresh coat of paint
RIPLEY — About 50 Future Farmers of America members spent their Thursday morning voluntarily painting buildings at Cedar Lakes, the state's official FFA camp.
Nathan Taylor, the state's FFA advisor, said it was great to see people come out for the organization's day of service event.
"Cedar Lakes is our home, Taylor said. "If you care about something you need to take care of it."
Cedar Lakes Foundation and Ripley Rotary Club paid for the paint and equipment and the chapter members provided the labor, Director Karen Facemyer said. The group is painting five cottages and one utility building.
