St. John’s Sauers hosts Ag Day

St. John’s Sauers Lutheran School’s parent-teacher organization went all out for the second Ag Day.

On Friday, Trinity Lutheran High School FFA members and Adviser Bryan Schroer offered their time, games and farm animals for the event. They also brought games, like cornhole, Frisbee football, giant Jenga and more, for the Sauers students, faculty, family and friends to enjoy.

Two Sauers alumni from Brownstown Central High School also helped with the event.

Several animals were brought by students or other people. Those included rabbits, sheep, chickens, goats, a mini donkey, two horses, baby chicks and a pig.

The school’s “Chef Emily Surenkamp” made food, consisting of smash burgers, hot dogs, baked beans, applesauce, cookies and chips, for a fun picnic-style lunch.

Tractors, equipment and semis also were brought in for the students to tour.

Hackman Show Feeds contributed show feed for the students to learn about, and there was a flower planting station, too.

Students cooled down with Bomb Pop popsicles, and many took rides on one of the horses named Moonshine brought by Betty Darlage.

Also, Rose Acre Farms provided students with educational materials.
