Unlike the area’s other four FFA Alumni chapters, only Algoma has to worry about where their members will come from in the future. Algoma High School lost their chapter about four years ago due to low numbers with some students now traveling to Kewaunee so they can still have their FFA experience. The Algoma FFA Alumni chapter is still very active. Running a food stand at the Kewaunee County Fair is the biggest of their six fundraisers every year. The organization supports several causes and scholarships, including raising over $81,000 last fall in memory of Andy Barta. Chapter President Paul Moede hopes something can be reestablished at the school in the future.
Moede says over 120 people help support the Algoma FFA Alumni annually at their food stand at the fair. This is a part of our series with local chapters celebrating National FFA Week.
