Pekin FFA Chapter receives grant from Dakota Pipeline

PACKWOOD ? The Pekin FFA Chapter has been awarded a grant of $1,427 from Dakota Access Pipeline LLC.

The money from this award will assist Pekin FFA members and students involved in the Talented and Gifted program in siding, wiring, flooring and roofing the outside ticket booth. The ticket booth is a ?first impression? to many visitors at Pekin, and the students want it to represent Pekin in an outstanding manner.

The Dakota Access Pipeline made a $90,000 donation to the Iowa FFA Foundation, and the money was split up among the FFA chapters, including Pekin?s, along the pipeline route.
