The winner of the John Deere B 2012 Raffle Tractor is Jerry Callan of Jerome! Congratulations Jerry and thank you to everyone who purchased raffle tickets to support Idaho FFA.
How do you remove an old, weathered, used, lovingly abused, dirty tire off of an old, soon to be beautiful, fully restored, John Deere tractor? Leave it to the guys at Les Schwab in Caldwell to figure it out and do an excellent job at the same time (we would not expect anything less from them).
The FFA Foundation is auctioning off a fully restored John Deere tractor beginning this week at the Canyon County Fair to help with the FFA Foundation scholarship fund and events. With almost eighty FFA chapters in the state of Idaho, a fundraising goal of $52,000 is attainable by each chapter selling sixty, $10 tickets. The tickets will go on sale this week at the Canyon County Fair where the restored tractor will be on display as well as being sold throughout the year from your local FFA chapter member.
The future of FFA, which in essence is the practical application of theory, relies on these young men and women to continue the traditions, be innovative and lead others in this deep rooted industry. FFA doesn’t just prep these high school kids for the farming and agricultural world, but for their impact, knowledge and leadership skills in many other industries as well.
