The FFA held an Ice Cream Social on Thursday, August 17th at the Lamont Cafeteria. The community was invited to eat ice cream, homemade desserts and learn more about the FFA program. The evening started off in the cafeteria with the FFA officers serving ice cream and desserts. After ice cream the FFA officers introduced themselves and told about upcoming activities, one being a blood drive on September 6th. The FFA officers encouraged the community members to donate blood and save a life. After the FFA officers spoke, they invited the guests to play volleyball outside. A good time was had by all.
Open House was held on Tuesday, August 22nd at the Deer Creek-Lamont School on Deer Creek campus.
