Next Alumni Meeting

For anyone interested in becoming more involved in the Coopersville FFA High School or Middle School chapters, the Alumni is a great option. You do not need to be a past FFA member or have a child in either chapter to be a part of this group. We would love to have you join us for our next meeting, which will be on Monday, October 12th, 2015 at approximately 8:00pm. We will be meeting in room B117 of the high school. Hope to see you there!

Alumni Meeting Date Change

It was decided at the last meeting to move the February meeting up to January 13th at the conclusion of the Chapter meeting (around 8:15pm). This will allow more time to plan for upcoming leadership contests and alumni events.

This meeting will also be election night. The President and Treasurer positions are up for election. If you are interested in learning more about either position, please contact either Kevin or April to learn more!

Summerfest Ice Cream Sale!

The Alumni will be hosting an ice cream and cold beverage booth on Wednesday of the Coopersville Summerfest, August 8th, from 5-8pm. We will be getting Hudsonville Ice cream tubs to sell bowls of ice cream in addition to cold water. We need about 2 more volunteers to help scoop ice cream and we are still looking for a pop up tent. If you or someone you know is willing to help out that night with either of those things email Dan at or call him at 616-401-1469.

Alumni Meeting May 31st, 7pm

I would like to invite you all to our first meeting of the summer on Thursday, May 31st at 7pm in the high school Ag Room. Topics to be discussed include:

Set date and begin planning for back-to-school picnic
Corporate sponsorship restructuring

We will also begin discussing a memorial event or other ideas to honor Aaron. I would possibly like to see this done as a separate meeting to give it the full attention it deserves. If that ends up being the case, we will set a date for that meeting.

This is an open meeting, so if there is anyone else who you know would like to come, feel free to invite them! Also feel free to bring any other topics that we need to discuss.

I hope to see you all there!

Kevin Wieringa
Alumni President
