Welcome to the North Clackamas Future Farmers of America Alumni Association page! If you are the parent of an FFA student, were in FFA when you were in school, or just care about helping students prepare for a career in agriculture, WE NEED YOUR HELP! We are the support network for the North Clackamas FFA and we've got lots of opportunities for you to join in. We are especially pleased to announce our new fundraiser, The Buyers Pool, which will gather funds to increase the profits students receive from their livestock projects at the Clackamas County Fair in August. Here's a list of just some of the great things we do:

We volunteer our time at: Regular alumni meetings generally held the 2nd Thursday of each month during the school year at 7pm at the Land Lab. Events and activities at the Land Lab including the Open House in September, the spring clean up in April, the plant sale in April & May, the FFA Banquet in May, and hosting the Chamber of Commerce in July. FFA activities away from the Land Lab including the National Convention in October, the State Convention in March, the County Fair in August and numerous competitions. Our own fundraisers including the Buyers Pool activities all year, the Christmas tree sale in December and the Annual BBQ and silent auction in July.

We donate money: From the Buyers Pool to the FFA students who raise animals for the Clackamas County Fair Junior Livestock Auction. From our other fundraisers to five $500 scholarships to graduating seniors for further education or training, to provide scholarships for students to travel to FFA competitions and conventions, and for other needs of the FFA program throughout the year.

Our current leadership is: Cliff Bergstrom, President, cliffb1995@gmail.com Shauna McReynolds, Vice President, shaunamcr@gmail.com Beth Bull, Treasurer Rebecca Huntley, Secretary Margaret Ott, Reporter, margyott@gmail.com
