FFA at the Royals
On May 15, 2014 19 members and 6 guests of the Rock Port FFA chapter attended the
Royals vs. Orioles game at Kauffman Stadium. Atchison Holt Electric generously donated
to pay for the chapter to watch the game from an, “All-Star Suite”. There was also a buffet
and unlimited soft drink supply available to the chapter in the suite. Though the Royals
fell a score short to the Orioles, everyone had a great time and the chapter wishes a HUGE
thank you to Atchison-Holt Electric!
