March 14th marked the fourth annual Rye Future Farmers of America (FFA) member labor auction and oyster fry. Ethan Beeman, the agriculture teacher at Rye High School, several FFA members, and a few great adult volunteers, made for a very successful fundraiser.

This is the fourth year that Beeman and the Rye FFA chapter have put on this fundraiser. The tickets for the meal were $10 each. Each meal came with the coveted Rocky Mountain Oysters, fried chicken strips, beans, cole slaw, desserts, and a drink. This year Beeman and his students sold over 500 tickets in meals. The dinner started at 6:00, where patrons also had the opportunity to peruse the silent auction pieces.

The students and Beeman work very hard to make this fundraiser a success each year. They go around the valley, Pueblo, and other surrounding businesses to ask of donations weeks before the event. The businesses either give items that are put up for the silent auction, or they give money donations. All of the money earned throughout the night including the money from the meal, the silent auction, donations, and the member auction all go into the FFA general fund to help pay for Rye FFA trips (like going to the National Stock Show), competitions, and general expenses.
