FCCLA Thanksgiving Dinner

MONDAY, Nov. 21, 2022


         BUFFALO – Following a two-year hiatus, it was definitely a successful return as the Altoona-Midway High School FCCLA held its 17th Community Dinner last week at Milo Peterson Gymnasium on the school campus.

         Members of the AMHS FCCLA (Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America) prepared turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, green beans, rolls, cranberry applesauce salads, and pumpkin pie for the approximately 40 community members and USD 387 staff in attendance.

         “It was a wonderful evening,” said Cathy Caylor, FCCLA advisor and Family and Consumer Sciences teacher at Altoona-Midway. “In addition to an amazing dinner, we installed the FCCLA officers for the 2022-23 year, and those in attendance were treated to an impressive performance by our high school drama students.”

The AMHS drama students performed “The Dear Diary” by Craig Sodaro
