FFA Fall Kickoff

Posted on 16 October 2012 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—The Boone A&M FFA Chapter kicked off the new school year, inviting quite a crowd of people to an event that was delayed because of the early harvest.

FFA Advisor Jim Fitzgerald speaks to Kickoff crowd Monday.

Those attending the Monday FFA Kickoff being served by Chapter members.

Jim Fitzgerald said originally they planned to hold the kickoff in September, but decided a delay would be in everyone’s best interest.  Fitzgerald says the kickoff is an opportunity for the FFA supporters to receive a little recognition and also get brought up to speed on plans for the new school year.  A real advantage is the FFA Alumni group that has done quite a bit to support activities of the club.  Next week, members of the Boone A&M FFA Chapter will be traveling to Indianapolis, Indiana for the 2012 FFA National Leadership Conference.  Eight chapter members are slated to attend the National Conference.
