CFESA at FFA (Future Farmers of America)
CFESA took to Indianaoplis for the annual FFA convention again this year. Our goal was to introduce the young adults and teens to our industry and make them aware of the CFESA Cares Scholarship opportunity. This conference also allowed us to speak with advisors and provide them with information that they can pass on to their students. We would like to give a huge thanks to Robert Harris and Steve Pfaehler with Smart Care Equipment Solutions for providing equipment and components. Steve also dedicated his time at the booth for the entirety of the show. Rusty Parke and Michael Hall from Vanco Commercial Service also volunteered time at the booth. We appreciate the help!
