FFA Convention

2009 FFA Booth with Volunteers CloseupThanks to Gary Connolly for working the trade show and for this report.

The FFA Convention went great, they reported approximately 55,000 FFA members and their advisors were in attendance at the trade show. Niceene made up a basket with a Halloween bucket that included a Mark Shaffer DVD, a Youth Judging DVD, a “Know Before You Tow” (Safely Transporting Livestock) DVD designed by a committee I serve on for the Illinois Farm Bureau, an Appaloosa Water Bottle, an Appaloosa can koozie, and 2 Bags of Halloween chocolates, that we donated in the ApHC name to the FFA scholarship silent auction, the last bid I saw on it was $50.00.

Packets were given to new advisors, they were really impressed with the information included. I had enough of the Appaloosa Computer CD’s left on hand to add to each of these folders. Also Dan Moriarty’s wife & son came by the booth, we had a nice visit; they were really glad to see the Appaloosa so well represented at the event.

Volunteers pictured are Susie Rhoades (Indiana), Brandi Daugherty (Illinois) and Gary Connolly (Illinois).
