Pa. Poultry Federation Holds Fund Raiser
The Pennsylvania Poultry Federation had something worth crowing about at its
annual fund raising banquet held Thursday night at Hershey Convention Center.
“It appears that avian influenza (A. 1.) is under control,” said Lynn Henninger, chair
man of the board of directors.
Henninger spoke of the brief struggle the Industry had when a flare-up of the most
dreaded disease in the poultry industry surfaced a few months ago.
Together the poultry industry and the government spent $87,000 to deplete the
flare-up, and a jubilant Henninger reported successful eradication of A.l. and said,
"The Poultry Federation is the most aggressive, united industry in Pennsylvania.”
The balance from the industry’s A.I. fund is $40,000.
About 1,600 persons attended the fund raiser in which proceeds are used to main
tain a productive and healthy poultry Industry for its members and suppliers.
Pennsylvania FFA officers Jacy Clugston and Mandy Hilbert thanked the industry
for its strong support of FFA. “it’s your deposit In leadership, citzenship, and service
for the future,” Clugston said.
Entertainment was provided by Jerry Reed, country singer and guitarist.
