Monthly Foundation Update: September 2019

Tommy visited the Zacharias Family, one of our 2-Star Partners! Vaughn, Dorinda, Vance, Verlin, and Donovan welcomed Tommy to their family operation and received a tour looking at all facets of their business and then enjoyed dinner together.  The tour was very interesting, from looking at the fleet of combines to climbing to the top of the 115 ft. grain bin.  Thanks to the Zacharias Family for hosting Tommy and for their continued passion and support of ND FFA!

Andrew and Tommy attended the Big Iron Farm Show.  The ND FFA Foundation partnered with MN FFA Foundation and had a booth/visual display set up in the Red River Farm Network building.  Our Star Partner and friend, AgCountry Farm Credit Services, hosted year two of “Coffee with the Corduroy” in their building and we had 20+ members from MN present to discuss the FFA with visitors.  Thanks again to AgCountry for making this event possible for us and our members and thanks to RRFN for welcoming us into their building!

Tommy visited ProSeed, who is a Star Partner and friend of the ND FFA.  Keith Peltier welcomed Tommy to the ProSeed location in Amenia, ND and gave him a tour of the facility as well as told Tommy about the company and its history.  We sure are grateful for their support and partnership with the ND FFA.  Thanks, Keith and the rest of the ProSeed team for all you do for the FFA!
