The Bloomfield FFA Chapter recently received a $1,000 donation from the Brandon Gerdes Memorial Trap Shoot. Corey Gerdes presented the check to the chapter officers. Corey and Lisa are the parents of Brandon Gerdes, who was killed in a semi-truck accident in December 2016. Corey is also the Farm Manager at Bloom N Egg Farm.
The trap shoot was held at the Northeast Nebraska Shooters Association Club located north of Pierce. Family and friends of Brandon gathered to compete and raise funds for organizations that were important to him. Brandon was a member of the Pierce FFA Chapter and always cherished his memories and knowledge he gained from FFA.
The donation is greatly appreciated by the Bloomfield FFA Chapter. Other organizations receiving donations from the event include the FFA Chapters of Pierce, Osmond, Plainview, and Verdigre along with Pierce FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) and the Northeast Nebraska Shooters Association.
Next year’s trap shoot is scheduled for June 24 so please mark your calendars.
