(sent to all Schools and alumni)

The Forreston FFA Alumni is very excited and proud to host their toy and craft show. The Forreston FFA Alumni Toy and Craft show will be held at Forreston High School on March 9, 2024, from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. There will be over 80 farm toy and craft exhibitors. There will be a silent auction from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm, and you do not need to be present to win. One of the area’s best lunch stands will be there with homemade pies, too. To add to the fun, there will be a Farm Display Competition with student and adult categories. There will also be raffles for Eickman’s Meat processing, Culver’s gift cards, and many door prizes for everyone! General admission is $3.00 and children under 5 are free.

This year's show tractors are both 1/64 scale models. The first is a Minneapolis Moline G-1000 Vista 2WD with duals. The second show, tractor is an Oliver 2255. Both tractors are priced at $35 each. These tractors will be on sale during this year's show on March 9, 2024, OR ask an FFA Alumni member to purchase ahead of time. 

All contracts for crafters, toy vendors, and toy displays are due February 1, 2024. Please check out the Alumni’s website for detailed information.
