"Blue Jackets" Arrive Next Week
The 80th National FFA Convention begins Wednesday (24 October) in downtown Indianapolis. FFA members in their signature blue jackets totalling some 55,000 remain through Saturday (27 October). Most events take place in the Conseco Fieldhouse, Indiana Convention Center, RCA Dome and Indiana State Fairgrounds. Georgia Street will become "FFA Way" during the national FFA convention. The northern most and southern most lanes of the street will be blocked off to create a pedestrian walkway. While the FFA is headquartered in Indy, there are 500,823 FFA members, aged 12-21 in 7,358 chapters in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
