Greetings membership, I Hope everyone had a great Christmas and a Happy New Year and that you got to spend it with the ones you love and cherish. The FFAM is starting the new year with a bang with lots of activities coming up in the coming months. By now you should have received your membership packets for renewal, please make sure that you get those back to us as they were due back January 1, if you have not done so yet. You don’t want to miss the activities and benefits the FFAM has to offer you.

Keep up the great work.Continue Reading →
