|History of Cumberland Valley FFA
Chartered in 1954, we are an active chapter within the Pennsylvania FFA Association whose goal is to focus on professional development and enhance the leadership capabilities of our members. We strive to be active in the community in terms of service to the citizens of the Cumberland Valley School District and abroad.
Our fundraising endeavors include a Citrus Fruit Sale and Butter Braid danishes. We also work closely with the CV FFA Alumni to help provide labor for the group's annual Christmas Tree Sale next to Pep Boys on the Carlisle Pike. Feel free to browse our navigation menu to the left for more information about our organization at CV.
