UPDATE: Due to the expected winter storm, the Toy Show has been cancelled Sunday. No word yet on a make-up date.
Southern Door High School FFA President Breanna Bongle commented that Future Farmers of America is reinventing its name at Southern Door School. Emphasizing that FFA is not just for farmers, Breanna said that the school organization is a great outlet to inform and give back to the community. Not a farmer herself, Bongle joined because of her sister, Becca Bongle. Her love for the organization has grown over the years, and she encourages everyone to take part in FFA.
Coming up December is the annual FFA Alumni Toy show. Breanna said that the FFA Southern Door students help out with the Toy Show. She says that it is great to see the turn out each year and all the contributor's sales and toys.
"The 14th annual FFA Alumni Toy Show" will be 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Dec. 1 at Southern Door High School, 2073 County Road DK in the high school gym. There will be all sorts of toy vendors plus vendors with items that interest ladies from jewelry and makeup to Tupperware. In addition to shopping, there are activities such as a silent auction, door prizes, and bucket raffles. Come and shop, enjoy the farm toy displays, and grab some lunch, too. Admission is $3; children ages 10 and younger admitted free. Proceeds of the Toy Show help provide jackets, scholarships, and program support to our local FFA student chapter."
Bongle's future plans include attending UW-Green Bay next year. She hopes to stay in Future Farmers of America the possible first two years out of high school.
