Tractor pull looking to raise funds for Veterans Memorial

September 7, 2018

NEWMAN GROVE - A special tractor pull event is set for this weekend in Newman Grove.

Dennis Fowlkes with American Legion Post 73 says the pull will feature antique and “off the farm” tractors.

Fowlkes says free will donations from the event will help with costs to construct a Veterans Memorial in the city.

“We have a site pick out here just right off the Main Street area. We’ve seen some other nice Veterans Memorials in towns around us and we just believe it’s time for us to get to work and get one put up to honor our veterans of the past” Fowlkes said.

He says raffle tickets will also be sold for a helicopter ride for two at the event.

The free event is set for Sunday near the football field east of Highway 45 and will get underway at 10 a.m.
