A tractor show that was held recently in Carney, Michigan allowed local residents to show their support for the local community while preserving the agricultural heritage of the region, according to WLUC TV 6.
Powered by the Mid County Antique Power organization, the tractor show generated money that is expected to be used for providing local kids with scholarship money, helping to ease the college process for many of the struggling families in the area, reported the news source.
"We do scholarships for kids that are high school graduates planning to attend college for farm-related reasons," Al Thompson, president of the organization, told WLUC 6. "The money we raise, we also use for families if they have a fire and they lose everything, we try to help them out."
More than 70 tractors, including used John Deere models, were featured in the annual event, reported the news source.
The show features an annual raffle, where a used John Deere tractor is refurbished and then auctioned off to generate money for the scholarship fund, according to the Mid County Antique Power Website.
