Sutherlin Students blew everyone away at the annual Sutherlin Light Parade on Saturday December, 14th. Sutherlin FFA members spent countless hours working to make our float great for this years theme "A Country Christmas." The students were in charge of designing and building the float, which was quite a challenge this year. The idea our students had was to design a horse pulling a sleigh, and turning a trailer into a barn; this was easier said than done. It took all week to pull everything together and to get lights on everything including the ten foot horse! Sutherlin FFA members had a blast cruising the streets, throwing out candy, and showing off all the hard work put into the floats. Sutherlin FFA's creativity did not disappoint the town people as we recieved first place in the theme division! Students love being involved with the light parade and another successful year of lighting it up can be added to everyone's memory.
