West Carter Field Day set for Saturday

May 7, 2014 — The West Carter chapter of the Future Farmers of America (FFA) is sponsoring a field day this Saturday at West Carter High School.

The event will feature a live petting zoo, as well as pony and wagon rides and live bluegrass music.

Various presentations will also take place at the field day. These events are aimed at educating people on the finer points of historical practices—particularly those relating to farm life.

“We’ll be giving people a glimpse into how things were done in the past. There will be demonstrations of cow milking, butter churning, quilting and other historical activities,” said Will Davis, West Carter’s FFA sponsor.

“We will also have vendors with hand- crafted items and all sorts of concessions and baked goods available for purchase at the event,” he added.

Information booths for various non-profit and volunteer organizations throughout the county also will be on site.

The field day will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday at West Carter High School. Admission is free and the event is open to the public.

For more information about the event or FFA activities at West Carter High School, contact Will Davis via email at or by phone at (606) 286-2481.

Joe Lewis can be reached at or by telephone at 286-4201.
