Birkey’s Farm Store celebrates anniversary

HENRY — In celebration of its 60th anniversary, Birkey’s Farm Store Inc. is partnering with the River Bend Food Bank, Peoria Area Food Bank and five other food banks to raise $100,000 for hunger relief.

The public is invited to an open house from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday at 1350 Western Ave., Henry. Food bank representatives will be on hand to talk with guests and collect donations. A fully restored 1954 Farmall Super MTA tractor, to be given away at the end of the Hunger Drive, will be on display. Every $10 donated earns guests a ticket for a chance to win the tractor.
