Cars, trucks and motorcycles of all makes and models were on display last Saturday at North Oconee High School’s inaugural “Crops, Car and Tractor Show,” which raised money for county FFA groups. 

While NOHS volunteers helped with aspects like directing traffic, volunteers from Malcom Bridge Middle School hosted a Boston butt sale. 

Oconee County Middle and Oconee County High schools hosted the event’s fun zone, which included corn hole, bouncy houses, cotton candy and popcorn. 

Tim Griffeth, the NOHS FFA teacher, mentioned that he was thankful to engage the community and get the school system on board with the event, which raised over $9,000. 

“We let the kids be a part of the planning and the facilitation of an event like this so this [experience] can be something they take with them as they leave high school and get out into the workforce,” Griffeth said. 

Just as there were a variety of volunteers, so too were there a variety of show participants displaying their unique vehicles.
