Tractor Drive to be held Sunday, July 12

Plans are underway for the MPFB Young Leaders "Crops for College" Tractor Drive. Get your tractor ready and join us as we travel through Henry and Whitefield Townships in Marshall County on Sunday, July 12. Cost is $35 per tractor. Breakfast will be available for a small donation.

This year's drive will depart from the Marshall-Putnam fairgrounds in Henry, Illinois at 11 a.m. and will return around 1 p.m. Registration begins at 10 a.m. So as not to disturb the livestock, participants are asked to enter through the West Gate of the fairgrounds and unload, then drive your tractor to the front gate to register.

All proceeds from this event goes to the "Crops for College" scholarship fund which awards scholarships to local students planning to study agriculture in college. The MPFB Young Leaders group would like to thank Rumbold & Kuhn for sponsoring this year's event.

Advance registration is preferred but not necessary. For more information or to pre-register, contact the Marshall-Putnam Farm Bureau office at 309-364-2501 or
