It's Farm Show Month in Wisconsin 
Thank you to everyone who supported Wisconsin FFA at the Eau Claire Farm show earlier this month. We are so grateful for Heidi Clausen and The Country Today staff for their continuous efforts with this silent auction. This year, they raised over $3,000 in support of FFA members! 
And, looking ahead...

Thank you Wisconsin FFA Alumni 
Thank you to all donors at the Wisconsin FFA Alumni Association's 2018 Convention, held Feb. 9-10 in at the Paper Valley Hotel in Appleton. 
Through the Past State FFA Officers' painted watering cans, and an Ag Ed 100th Anniversary quilt made and donated by New Auburn FFA Advisor Brenda Scheil, $2,750 was raised for the Wisconsin FFA Foundation. 
Cheryl Steinbach, the Wisconsin FFA Alumni Association executive director, presented a check to the Foundation Board of Directors at its March meeting. 
The current State FFA Officers were also inducted as lifetime Wisconsin FFA Alumni members at the event, seen in picture above. 
Thank you! We appreciate our Alumni donors!

Executive Director John HromyakDear Jonas & Jen,
As we celebrate the first day of spring, it’s hard to believe that we’re also entering the final months of the 2017-18 school year and FFA calendar!

Our members and advisors have been busy working on proficiency applications, competing in career and leadership development events, and preparing for summer activities – including State Convention, coming up this June 11-14. We’ll be proud to join with our sponsors and benefactors in celebrating our members’ accomplishments and hard work.
We still have a number of sponsorships open, but the deadline to participate in this year’s convention is fast approaching. Please feel free to call or email me if you’re interested in getting involved through a sponsorship of one of these areas, or discuss partnership through one of our upcoming golf outings or other partner programs.
Thank you for all you do to support FFA members and agricultural education here in Wisconsin. Please enjoy our other updates in this Corduroy Connection!
John Hromyak 
Executive Director, Wisconsin FFA Foundation
