Members of the Smyrna FFA Alumni have been very busy over the last few months with fundraising activities and planning for 2018 events.

In November 2017, the officer team packaged goodie bags full of cookies and candy and delivered to the farmers in the Smyrna-Clayton area. These goodie bags were a way of saying thank you for the sacrifices they make throughout the year to help feed the world.

Our next big event will be the first Alumni Social on Feb. 2 at 6 p.m. Planned to be an annual event, the social will include a dinner, silent auction, raffles, and dancing. Dinner will include a catered BBQ meal.

The next quarterly meeting will be held March 6 at 7 p.m., at a location to be announced. Items on the agenda include a 2018 scholarship for a graduating senior and officer elections.
