It's 17 years since the Kewaunee County FFA Alumni started a truck-tractor pull on one member's farm to raise a few dollars for local FFA programs. Now the event is a full-blown extravaganza that attracts hundreds of fans. Ed Patek, :: PAH-TECK :: of the FFA alumni group, says the event has evolved from stock farm vehicles to equipment solely designed for competition.
The proceeds from the truck-tractor pull go to high school FFA programs and to college scholarships for agriculture students. Patek says support for those efforts and a chance for some great family fun are the main attractions for fans.
The 17th Annual Kewaunee FFA County Alumni Truck-Tractor pull is set for June 21st starting at 6:00 PM at the Ag Heritage Farm on Highway 42 south of Kewaunee.
