Hiawatha FFA grain show, auction will be Saturday

KIRKLAND – The Hiawatha High School FFA chapter is hosting its 76th annual grain show and auction Saturday.

Adviser Joshua Dodge said the grain show starts at noon, dinner is served at 5:30 p.m. and the auction begins at 7 p.m. Dinner, which costs about $5, is served by the FFA alumni.

“The grain show is primarily for members, but we’re really trying to promote the auction,” Dodge said.

Members have collected items for the auction including tools, farm toys, gift certificates, bags of seed corn and even a couple of fertilizer applications.

“It’s geared toward agriculture, but it’s not all ag stuff,” Dodge said.

Todd Wills of Monroe Center will serve as auctioneer.

Funds raised help FFA members attend state and national conventions. Dodge said members are collecting nonperishable food items for the local food pantry and growing poinsettias in the greenhouse. Members also recently did a roadside clean up as part of the county’s Adopt-a-Road program.
