Dear editor,

The 37th annual Cambridge FFA Alumni Pancake Breakfast on Nov. 13 was a huge success yet another year. 862 people were served in four and a half hours. People from all around the area came to support the FFA and FFA alumni.

Something of this size cannot be done, and done so well, without all the great volunteers! It takes about 50 volunteers including alumni members, community members, parents, Cambridge Fire Department members and employees of the Cambridge School District to work together to be able to provide this meal.

All the FFA members, and even younger siblings, at CHS and NMS worked so very hard. The alumni would also like to acknowledge Mrs. Klingbeil, the FFA advisor, for all of her support with the students and alumni! All of her hard work shows through the great students! Good Job!

Other supporters include Bank of Deerfield, Cambridge Badger Bank, Cambridge NAPA, Cambridge Piggly Wiggly, Cambridge School District, Dean Foods, Fort Atkinson Kwik Trip, Gavilon Grain, Jones Dairy Farm, Stenjem Acres and United Community Bank.

Those that purchased breakfast tickets helped to support the school districts’ agricultural education department with classroom needs, Severson Learning Center support, registration fees for several student leadership conferences at both the middle school and high school levels, meat animal project loans, scholarships, funding to attend National FFA Convention, Washington DC Leadership Convention and numerous other things. This organization is about providing opportunities for students. Due to so many people contributing that will be a reality to many.

On behalf of the FFA and the FFA Alumni I would like to invite everyone back again next year! What a great community to represent!

Karen Stenjem

FFA Alumni President
