FFA members volunteer

Miami East FFA members Ethan Paulus, Mathew Osting, Kyle Vernon, Dustin Winter and Ethan Fine load tires into a semi at the Miami County Fairgrounds on Wednesday morning as part of the annual Miami Soil & Water Conservation District tire recycling program. A total of 18 FFA members from Miami East worked the event. Linda Raterman from the Miami Conservancy District said that they collected around 1,700 tires, the largest amount ever. A grant from the Miami County Foundation helped to make the event possible.
