The Cut-ups and Carpenters met on May 4 at 6 p.m. at advisors Greg and Marcia Ward’s house. There were 6 members and 3 guests present. There were no committee reports at this meeting because it was a work meeting, not a formal meeting. After making morning glory muffins the girls competed in trying to put together cereal box puzzles by our recreation officers, Dena Wilson and Gillian Setty.

The Urbana FFA participated in the 2016 Relay for Life at the Champaign County fairgrounds. Before the relay, the chapter held a strawberry sale, which brought in $932 in proceeds for donation. Over $250 was raised due to the Cow Chip Bingo game the chapter held at the relay. The winners of the game won four Dayton Dragons tickets and a set of cornhole boards. The boards were made by Urbana agriculture students and the bags were made by Susan Fleece. The chapter ended up donating over $1200 to American Cancer Society.
