FFA’s Annual Sausage Grind Has Students Eager for the Meat
by Jacob Hojnacke
Today the smell of sausage cooking can be smelled throughout the school — that must mean its the annual Walkersville Sausage Grind hosted by the FFA.
“The Fundraiser is for the Clayton Lenhart Memorial Scholarship Fund” says Brittany Ramsburg of the FFA and alumni. “We started yesterday morning, unpacking and chopping and this year we had around 28,000 pounds of sausage delivered.”
The event itself has been going on since 2008. The way it works is that the meat is given to the FFA and then they begin to chop, season,cook, and prepare the meat for staff, teachers, and students. The money that is gained from selling the sausage is put into the fund, which helps kids earn scholarships and go to college.
I also spoke to Junior Dylan Burns who said “We also stash it and make it into sausage links and that what’s bought at the grocery store”.
While at 2nd lunch I spoke to Sophomore Dylan Shakara who stated “I’d rather have sausage than the lunch I made!”
If you weren’t able to make it this year, just wait until January 2019 for the next one!
