On Friday May 6, community members will have a chance to buy high-quality vegetable plants while supporting some of Dawson County High School’s students during the DCHS FFA vegetable plant sale. 

The sale will be run by and support the students in the DCHS Future Farmers of America (FFA) club and will offer a variety of vegetable plants for purchase, according to information provided by FFA Advisor Keith Pankey. 

The club will have about 300 each of several types of tomatoes for sale, including German Giants, Rutgers, Beef Steak and Cherokee Purple. 

There will also be a variety of types of peppers available for purchase, including Bell peppers, Sweet Banana peppers, hot pepper mix and Jalapeño peppers. The number of peppers available will be limited, so the sale will operate on a first come, first served basis. 

All plants will come in 3 inch pots and cost $2 each. The sale will run from 3 to 7 p.m. on Friday May 6 at Dawson County High School. 

Also upcoming, the Dawson County FFA Alumni will host a “Chicken-Q” event on May 7. Plates will cost $10 each, and each plate will include two chicken breasts, baked beans, applesauce, a roll and a cake slice. 

The event will last from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on May 7, and plate pick up will be at Juno Baptist Church, located at 1230 Juno Road in Dawsonville. Presale tickets are available to pre purchase plates.
