We want to thank the community of Worthington and the surrounding areas for all of the support we received while our team competed at the National FFA Convention last week.
As many of you know, our van was broken into while we were eating dinner at a Texas Roadhouse in Indianapolis. Our laptops, gas money, some clothing and most of the items that we needed for competition were stolen. We received so much help from our FFA family as well as all of you.
Lindsey Brown, a Mountain Lake FFA Advisor, replaced our concert tickets and convention buttons, and located black shoes for Josh. The Minnesota State FFA replaced our parking passes and convention tickets. Sam Johnson, the MN FFA State Sentinel, lent us his laptop for the week to use for our competition. The CEO of Texas Roadhouse donated a laptop to our chapter as well as treating all of us to a meal.
We want to thank all of these people as well as Matt Widboom and Chad Cummings at Radio Works, the Ag Advisory Board, and everyone who donated money or gave any kind of support to us. Insurance will not be utilized to replace the stolen items, so the money raised by the community will be used for this purpose. Any leftover money from the fund will be distributed to FFA members in the form of college scholarships. The many calls and texts from you were very much appreciated.
Our team feels so blessed that all of the items stolen will be replaced because of your kindness and generosity. Again, thank you to all who helped and supported us. We are so lucky to be surrounded by “Minnesota Nice.”
