I Believe Convention is Almost Here!

     Thousands of staples, hundreds of paperclips, thousands of papers, stacks of envelopes, scripts, boxes of supplies, at least fifteen computers, three interns, and four staff members...  It's almost there!  In just two days two thousand blue jackets will flood the Purdue campus to compete, see friends, and be inspired and motivated.
     To say the state officer team is excited would be a major understatement.  Personally, I cannot wait to see the community service project.  Service is important to our team, and I had the opportunity to organize a service project for the 83rd Indiana FFA State Convention.  FFA members will be packing over 20,000 meals, assisting at the Food Finders food bank in Lafayette, and working at the Tippecanoe County Amphitheater Monday afternoon.
     We have had a lot of fun preparing for convention and can't wait to get everyone here and share it with them!  A service project, a flashmob, sessions, and banquets are just part of what we have to offer.  I Believe that this convention will be a great one because of the members across the state!
