FBLA Harvest Supper/Auction
The Presque Isle FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) had their annual harvest supper/auction on Tuesday, October 25, 2016 at the Presque Isle Snowmobile Club. Kathy Peary from Presque Isle catered a delicious Thanksgiving meal which was enjoyed by everyone. The club wishes to thank Governor’s Restaurant and Pepsi Bottling Co. for their donation of the rolls and Pepsi products for the evening. A big thank you also goes out to MMG and Northeast Packaging for helping pay for the meal.
FBLA members met at the clubhouse on Sunday afternoon to set up tables andchairs, and decorate with fall décor. On Tuesday, the students that could be in attendance all worked together organizing the auction items prior to the meal and helping with whatever they could to make the evening go smoothly.
Tom Drew, the auctioneer, kept the crowd in laughter during the auction and the money that was raised will help the FBLA students attend the annual convention in Portland, ME (March 2017).
