FARMING OUT FUNDS
The tourism bureau also agreed to approve $10,000-per-year through 2015 to FFA.
A convention was held in Louisville for seven years, before it was moved to Indianapolis in 2008. The show is returning to Louisville this fall.
“In today’s world to get conventions of this type, you have to make a financial commitment to the organizations,” Keith said. “The commitment to FFA to get them down to Louisville was $1-million-per year that they come. Our portion of that is $10,000 per year that they come.”
The pledge amount was approved and the convention is set to be held in Louisville from Oct. 30-Nov. 2.
