Today’s Future Farmers of America clubs in Door and Kewaunee counties depend heavily on its members of yesteryear. FFA Alumni organize fundraisers like tool sales and cheese tasting events to help cover expenses for today’s students. Kewaunee FFA Alumni President Matt Wojta was asked to stick around and help the club grow before he even graduated in 2001. Now, the Kewaunee FFA Alumni organization has grown to close to 40 members with more than 70 people helping with its annual summer truck and tractor pull. Wojta says even though his business does not take him to too many farms, he believes sticking with the Kewaunee FFA Alumni is one way he can give back to the community.
FFA alumni chapters are located at Sevastopol, Kewaunee, Luxemburg-Casco, Southern Door and Algoma. You can tune in all week long for stories from other local chapters during National FFA Week, which will conclude with a special Ask the Expert with the Sevastopol FFA sponsored by Septic Maintenance.
