By Chapter Reporter Emma Jameson

The annual Ada FFA banquet was held March 30 in the cafeteria at Ada High School. 

During our meal, Kaitlyn Long presented our annual slide show. The slide show was the highlight of the evening. It gave parents, as well as community members, a chance  to see what the FFA really does throughout the year.

 Members of the Parliamentary Procedure teams, Public Speaking, Job Interview and Soil Judging contestants were recognized.

Leadership and scholarship pins were also handed out to those who qualified. In the area of proficiency awards, the following members received recognition: 

1690s Salem, Mass., setting of Ada HS spring drama

Story and photo by Monty Siekerman
"A Voice in the Dark: A Salem Story" is this spring's play put on by the Ada Drama Association at the high school auditorium. Curtain time is 7 p.m. on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, April 15-17.

Told through the eyes of a teenager, the two-act play is a thrilling and poignant tale of one of the darkest eras in American history, the time of the witch trials in Salem, Mass., in the 1690s.

Peg Gordon, the director, called the 90-minute play "challenging" for the cast, which is composed of junior and senior high students. Amy Stover is assistant director.

The play was written by Elizabeth Downing.
