Eighth Year of Success for the Fremont FFA Alumni & Friends Annual Euchre Fun Night
The Fremont FFA Alumni & Friends held their annual fundraiser, a Euchre Fun Night, on Saturday, January 25 at the Fremont High School. This marked the eighth year holding the event and it was a great success. This year’s event sold out for the first time ever with 56 teams registering.
“We are so grateful to the community for supporting this event and the Fremont FFA program,” said Loretta Towne, Fremont FFA Alumni and Friends President. We are absolutely overwhelmed by the success of this event each year and the support we receive not only from the card players but local businesses and community members that sponsor the event.”
This year’s event net proceeds will be just over $3,100. The funds raised will be used to directly benefit the Fremont FFA Chapter and members. Areas include leadership conferences, State and National Conventions, FFA jackets and classroom materials.
The evening began with a delicious meal from award winning, Smokin' Good Time BBQ, featuring pit master Mark Westcott.
As dinner wrapped up, participants moved on to playing Euchre. In addition to enjoying cards and fellowship, many participants received door prizes and tried their luck in a 50/50 drawing.
At the end of the night, several teams were recognized and took home prizes. Finishing in fourth place was Rhonda Riddle and Bill Wallace. Taking the third-place spot was Mark and Jackie Hoogerhyde. In second place was Jim Schwartz, Jr. and his teammate Fred. Coming in first place was the team of Nancy Zeldenrust and Lucinda Thompson.
“This event would not be what it is without the generosity of our sponsors. We greatly appreciate their support,” said Towne. Gratitude is extended to Gold Sponsors: Cushman Meat Processing, Delia’s Stump Removal and Newaygo Insurance Agency; Silver Sponsors: Farm Bureau Insurance-Landheer Agency, Fremont Animal Hospital, JMAX LLC, Nieboer Electric, Seth Pell & Gary Sholty and Rob & Marva Zeldenrust; Bronze Sponsors: The Adsmond Family, Fremont Moose #1555 Euchre Club, Gerber Farms, The Houston Family, Brent Tanis & Travis Bennett and The Smith Farm.
