Livestock Show, Young Farmers Sell-Out Meal Kept Flatonia Kids Busy Last Week

The Flatonia Young Farmers hosted its 30th annual barbecue chicken scholarship fundraiser at the Flatonia American Legion Hall on Friday, Jan. 12.

The meal takes place every year on the Friday of the Flatonia FFA Livestock Show. According to organizer Chris Masek, the Flatonia Young Farmers began the tradition in 1988.

“We sell 775 plates, pre-sale only,” Masek said while watching over the last few chicken halves remaining on the pits Friday morning. “We’d sell more, but we can’t fit any more chickens on the pits we use.”
