The Owasso FFA chapter sold watermelons Thursday at Owasso High School at 86th Street North and 129th East Avenue.

"As an FFA Chapter, we a lot of times, want to be involved in the community as much as possible, and this was just a great opportunity for us," said Owasso Senior Zadie Cook.

Owasso Sophomore Katelyn Miller said, "People get excited when they are given the opportunity to do something great for people, and I think we're just wanting to give them that opportunity."

This Owasso chapter had raised $800 by lunchtime.

They'll be selling again Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
