The Blanco chapter of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America attended the Region V Meeting held in Corpus Christi, Texas on January 29 – 30, 2010. The chapter members were among 1,200 delegates attending the two-day conference. The youth developed theme, “Beyond the Limits” was carried out through tracks featuring a series of specialized workshops and general sessions in which members discovered ways to become actively involved in issues facing today’s youth. FCCLA is a dynamic youth organization that has the family as the central focus.
