Items in This Message

1) Ag Legislative Awareness Day

2) American FFA Degree 

Ag Legislative Awareness Day

Ag Legislative Awareness Day is scheduled for March 28.  Please mark your calendars and plan to attend.  Last year we had over 700 FFA members flood the cappitol with blue jackets.  That does make an impact and people know we are there.  As in past years, FFA members will be delivering baskets and lunches to legislators.  You are also encouraged to contact your local state representative and senator and schedule a visit with them if you can.

Attached to this message is a letter with information about Ag Legislative Awareness Day and an Excel spreadsheet to use to submit your list of names of those attending the event.  Should you have questions, please contact our office.
