Ackley Tractor Enthusiasts Visit

Saturday June 6 Marv Fritz and the Ackley Lions Club made their annual tractor run.  They visited Whispering Willows, the REA Plant and the Old Stone House.  There were 28 tractors, lots of fellas having a good time and the visits were thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.

Copies of the new book, “My First Tractor” which features contributions from local authors, Ray Baltes, and Bob Artley, were offered for sale. A portion of the proceeds were donated to the Old Stone House.
