Olympia FFA Alumni Auction     Send a link to a friend

[DEC. 27, 2004]  STANFORD -- The Olympia FFA Alumni Chapter is requesting public support of the Olympia FFA Chapter by attending the second annual Olympia FFA Alumni Auction on Jan. 7, 2005, at 5:30 p.m. in the Olympia Middle School cafeteria. All members of the community are welcome to attend.

Items in the auction to date include tickets to local professional sports events and team memorabilia; gift certificates to local merchants; Terry Redlin prints; various agricultural supplies, including seed corn and beans; outerwear; and toy tractors.

Last year the alumni group raised more than $6,000 to support the Olympia chapter. With the funds raised, the alumni were able to award $2,000 in scholarships to Olympia FFA members for their efforts in career development events, supervised agricultural experience projects and leadership.

This year the alumni group is hoping to build on the moneys raised and reward Olympia FFA members for their scholastic hard work by offering financial support to attend the State FFA Leadership Camp and Washington Leadership Conference. Funds will also be used to support the purchase of FFA jackets for Greenhand members.
