On behalf of the Bonners Ferry FFA chapter, we would like to thank the community of Boundary County for donating items, attending and participating in the 71st Annual Harvest Auction. This year, we made a few drastic changes.

Instead of holding the auction in the auditorium, as we normally do, we held the auction in the high school gym. It was a huge success!

We brought in enough funds to allow the chapter to continue serving the community, to attend leadership training events and to provide scholarships for students participating in Career Development Events.

We recognize many of our supporters donate to multiple organizations, and without the generosity of these amazing community members and businesses, many opportunities for youth would not exist.

Our thanks go out to Aamodt Inc., Accurate Collision, Barb Lepoideven, Beck's Furniture, Bonner-Boundary Cattle Association, Bonners Ferry Vet Clinic, Boundary Tractor, Carter Country, Cher Aucutt, Cheryl Eager, Chic-n-Chop, Cloud Eleven Mountain Farm, Darcy an Mandy Lammers, Dawson Ridge Hydrographics, Duarte Construction, Farm to Market Grains, Gary and Barb Neumayer, General Feed and Grain, Hill Excavating, Horizon Landscape, Hubbard Ag Science, Idaho Alpine's, Idaho Granite Works, Iron Mike's Gym, Janis Tucker, JB's Les Schwab, Jimmy and Brenda Ball, Kerr Supply/Car Quest, Larson's Department Store, Lee and Missy Pinkerton, Liz Wood, Mane Street Hair, Mead's Equipment & Diesel, Merle Olson, Mike and Teresa Mulvaney, Moore Chiropractic, Mountain West Bank, North Hill Tire, North Idaho Energy Logs, Olson's Valley Ranch, Outdoors By Design, Outta the Woodwork, Pacific Northwest Farmers Coop, Pape' Machinery, Peterson Farms, Philip Sweet, Pizza Factory, Points North Orchard, Ronniger's Produce, Rymo Cattle Company, Shelman Realty, Soulshine Bistro, Super 1 Foods, Superior Therapy, Tamie Bremer, The Gathering Place, The Hair Connection, TNT Beams, Ty and Lisa Iverson, Virginia Cowley, Wildwood Leather, Wood's Meat Processing and Young Living Farms.
