HENNEPIN — The seventh Annual “Crops for College” Tractor Drive, hosted by the Marshall-Putnam Farm Bureau’s Young Leaders group, will take place on Aug. 24. This year it is being held in conjunction with the Putnam County Historical Society’s Agricultural Museum Open House.

Participants will drive through the scenic countryside of Putnam County. Registration begins at 11 a.m. with departure at 1 p.m. from the Putnam County Ag Museum in Hennepin. The cost to participate is $35 per tractor. There is no year restriction on tractors, but participants need to be able to travel at 10 miles per hour.

All proceeds from the tractor drive go to the Young Leaders “Crops for College” scholarship fund which awards scholarships each year to local students who plan to study agriculture in college.
