“We would like to thank John Carroll for allowing us to have our products delivered and distributed from his warehouse,” said Austin FFA assistant Kim Schechinger. “As well as the Austin FFA Alumni, and adult volunteers that helped us unload and organize products for students to pick up. We couldn’t have done it without your help.”

“Our students did a very nice job of following the COVID-19 guidelines and helping to sustain and grow this important program for our chapter,” said Austin FFA assistant Nick Schiltz. “We want to thank the Austin community and surrounding Mower County area for their generous support of our fruit and butterbraid sales for 2020.”
