Flashback – 1977 – FIRE!

From The Harvester, November 1977

Fire broke out in the FFVA headquarters building at 12:30 a.m., October 5, literally hours before the annual membership meeting set for the morning of October 6.

Although damage was extensive inside the building – one wing was completely gutted – division functions housed in those offices are being carried on from temporary quarters on the FFVA property.

Sensitive FFVA records had been properly safeguarded and loss of records was minimal. The annual meeting and member luncheon went on as scheduled.
