The first-ever meeting of the Ava FFA Booster Club was held in June. More than 35 eager community members were present. Discussed were many aspects of what the Booster Club will do and many people presented ideas. It will be a non-profit organization and those who plan to help do so on a volunteer basis. The main goals are to build enthusiasm in FFA members, develop more community support, and help alleviate any financial burdens the FFA chapter may have during the year. Planning began for the organization’s first fundraiser, to be held in September. It will consist of a silent and live auction, with a dinner. Leadership for the club were nominated and voted upon as well. Those elected were: President, Kerre Clark; Vice President, Ed Wittorff; and Secretary/Treasurer, Garry DeVore Next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, July 20, at 7 p.m. in the Ag building at the high school. “We hope to see you there”, said Clark.
