Coleman FFA

The Coleman FFA has a terrific opportunity to be a part of the
Campbell's Soup and the National FFA Alumni Association's Barn Reviving
Project. With the support of everyone we hope to win this contest and
help a local citizen out with rebuilding their family barn. Please read
the following information on this contest and barn.

The Barn Reviving Project is made possible through a partnership
with the Campbell Soup Company and the National FFA Alumni Association.
Together they are raising awareness about the importance of supporting
the future of American farming and the agriculture industry, our
nation's largest employer. Campbell's pledge of $250,000 to FFA is
intended to help ensure that future generations will continue growing
the quality ingredients that go into our food. This special project
provides service-learning opportunities and connects FFA Alumni and
Chapters, Campbell's Soup Company and communities through a common
initiative: sustaining the future of our food sources. One of the ways
they are doing this is by restoring five old barns a year. The barn
Coleman FFA would be involved with, would be the Augie Fudala Farm in
Bark River, Michigan. This barn is one of ten finalists which is
featured on the Campbell Soup website Beginning October 1st, 2009 the
whole country will be able to vote for their favorite barn. You can vote
once a day everyday through November 30th, 2009. The five winners will
be chosen in December. The barns will be given a complete facelift with
the work being done by the Coleman and Stephenson, Michigan FFA
Chapters, FFA Alumni, family, friends and other volunteers. This is all
made possible with a grant from the Campbell Soup Company. Also, when
you vote, $1 is donated to the Nation FFA Organization.

Your votes will be greatly appreciated, so please help to spread the
word and remember to vote everyday at for the Augie Fudala Barn in Bark
River Michigan.
