We had a great time sharing our FFL experience with a lot of kids from the community aged 4-10 and their teachers/parents at the Gambier Community Center today. Our team was pumped and hopefully we have inspired some kids and seeded another team or two down the road.

Since this is our first year we didn’t know what to expect, but everything turned out well for everyone involved. Special thanks to the Village of Gambier, Pam Schehl of the Mt. Vernon News, Radio Station WNZR and the Mt. Vernon City Public School District for helping us get the word out and providing a venue for our Demo Day.
