Members of Ukiah High’s Future Farmers of America gathered Thursday evening at the high school attending what FFA coordinator and Agricultural teacher Sadie DeMarta and Sara Friedman branded as a “Drive-Thru” meeting. DeMarta said the event hoped to “bring some normalcy back to our FFA members’ lives by attending a meeting in person.”

Ukiah High FFA Vice President Emily Winningham said distance learning has “been really hard. FFA is such a family and not being able to see your family in the pandemic has been hard on us officers.”

Winningham and her fellow officers “were super excited when we got the drive-thru set up.” She described staffing the “welcome station,” commenting on how “everyone looked so happy.”

Demarta described the event as a drive-thru where officers were at stations to meet and greet our members. She added that at the end of the event, “we had a business meeting… on Zoom.”

Demarta assured the event facilitate pandemic protocols requiring the wearing of masks, asking all participating students and families to remain in their cars, and maintaining social distancing. She added the FFA student officers are a cohort and all members of the cohort. She described their temperatures checked before the event, and a brief meeting was held before guests arrived reminding them about safety protocols.
