CLINTON, ILL. - Organizers announced Friday the cancellation of the 2018

DeWitt County Farm Bureau Tractor Drive due to forecasted rains and expected
wind for Saturday, Sept. 8.

 

The drive, which raises funds for the DeWitt County Farm Bureau Foundation,
was scheduled to depart the Farmer's Grain Elevator and Excel Railcar
Grounds in Kenney at 12 noon on Saturday, and travel about 26 miles before
returning to Kenney at about 5:30 p.m. 

 

Because many of the drives' volunteers are farmers, it will not be
rescheduled for this year due to proximity to fall harvest. Drivers who were
pre-registered and pre-paid will receive a full refund. 

 

Despite the rains, which forecasters say are remnants of the tropical storm
Gordon, the Farm Bureau encourages residents to keep the Kenney Fall
Festival in your weekend plans as events including the Kenney Fire Chicken
Supper will continue.  

 

DeWitt County Farm Bureau thanks its Drive sponsors: AHW, Inc., Anderson
Ford, Baum Chevrolet Buick, Central Illinois Ag, Douglas Dodge Ram, and Farm
Credit Services.

 

Questions may be directed to DeWitt County Farm Bureau at 217-935-2126.
