New Hampton FFA Banquet

April 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


The New Hampton FFA will host their 87th Annual FFA Banquet which will be held on Saturday, April 14th in the New Hampton High School Gymnasium.

We will recognize four Iowa Degree Candidates and hand out Leadership and Agricultural Skills CDE (Career Development Event) awards. The Honorary Chapter Degree will be bestowed on an individual(s) or group(s), plus the New Hampton FFA Star Greenhand, as well as Star Chapter Degree Recipients will be named.

Our very own, 2017-18 Northeast District Secretary, Hannah Heit, and 2017-18 Northeast District Reporter, Rachel Grober bringing remarks. We will also have Ryan Pickar presenting The FFA Creed.

The FFA members are making items once again that will be offered at the live auction. This is a chance for the members to showcase their abilities and talents with projects that range from woodworking, baked goods, labor, to summer produce. The Alumni uses the funds from the auction to help support the FFA members and the chapter with their new and ongoing projects, as well as participation at district, state, and national events. New this year, we will be raffling off a FFA quilt made and donated by Patrice Schilling, Jordan Holthaus’s mother. To view this lovely quilt, stop by Addicted to Stitchin’ on Main Street in New Hampton to get a preview of our raffle item! We will be selling cards for this raffle, $10 for one card or three cards for $20.

The afternoons schedule will be as follows:
5:00 — Doors open
6:00 — Meal
6:30 — Program Starts (Live auction for Alumni throughout)

If this is your first banquet we believe that you will be pleasantly surprised with the organization and pride the members take in planning the banquet. If your child has an FFA jacket, we ask that he/she wear it with official dress if possible. If your son/daughter doesn’t have a jacket, it might be possible to borrow one from the chapter, or wear nice jeans/khakis and a nice shirt/polo. Either way, we look forward to seeing you there!

Finally, a tradition that has started at the New Hampton FFA Banquet is the Wall of Jackets. We invite you to bring in your FFA jacket, a family member’s FFA jacket and/or a friend’s FFA jacket to add to our display. The Wall of Jackets is something people look forward to every year and we would love to have you take part in it!

We look forward to sharing the evening with you. To RSVP for this award filled evening, please email Mr. Russ at j_russ@new-hampton.k12.ia.us or call 641-394-2144. extension 2101, by April 5th to let us know how many will be attending.
