I would like to extend my heartfelt appreciation to the Pioneer Valley Future Farmers of America (FFA) for their invaluable support during the opening reception of the Los Alamos Flea. The involvement of three exceptional high school students, Crystal Ortiz, Andrea Cuevas, and Abigail Velasquez, along with their teacher, Tyler Dickinson, made a remarkable impact on our event.
Crystal, Andrea, and Abigail, who represented Pioneer Valley FFA as servers, were a joy to work with. Their enthusiasm, professionalism, and genuine interest in the food and our chef’s work created a welcoming atmosphere that made our event far more memorable! They made a lasting impression on our team and the attendees, who praised the exceptional service they provided on multiple occasions.
I would also like to express my gratitude to Pioneer Valley’s Tyler Dickinson for his instrumental role in coordinating the participation of Pioneer Valley FFA students. His guidance and support were invaluable, showcasing his commitment to their growth and development.
Furthermore, I extend appreciation to Kylin Bray for her active involvement in Pioneer Valley FFA leadership and helping us coordinate everything.
The IRL Arts Foundation has been blessed to have many interactions with Pioneer Valley FFA students, and we are so hopeful for the future with every single one. Our future looks bright if our land and livestock are in the stewardship of these amazing future leaders!
As we live in an agrarian economy, we would like to encourage your readers to become more familiar with the FFA in Santa Barbara County. Our beautiful area relies on intelligent people with a strong moral compass to take good care of it for future generations. The dedication to community involvement and the sense of responsibility we experienced in our work with the students and leadership of the Pioneer Valley FFA has let us know our future is in good hands.
Once again, I want to express my sincere gratitude to Pioneer Valley FFA, Crystal Ortiz, Andrea Cuevas, Abigail Velasquez, Tyler Dickinson, and Kylin Bray for their exceptional support. We are immensely grateful for their partnership and eagerly look forward to future collaboration!
president, IRL Arts Foundation
