With Spring about to be sprung and we move forward to Spring and Summer, that only means warmer weather and the FFAM convention on April 12-14, at the Missouri State Fairgrounds. I hope everyone has enrolled and will be attending the great classes that are being offered free of charge. A reminder to all departments that will be entering their winning posters. They need to be delivered to the ladies’ auxiliary booth before the opening of the convention or they will not be judged. Also, please read over the rules for the contest to ensure the posters meet the contest requirements and all necessary information is filled out on the label. I hope everyone attends for the fun, fellowship, education, competitions and much deserved awards.

Thank you for all you’ve done for the fire service, FFAM, and for me. Thank you for being a friend, mentor, and teacher. Have a great time with your family and enjoy your new life of retirement and let the good times roll.Continue Reading →
