Marion County Farm Bureau Donated Life-Saving Equipment to a Local Fire Department

 

At the monthly meeting in March, Marion County Farm Bureau donated a turtle tube grain rescue sleeve to the Loretto Volunteer Fire Department. We hope it will never have to be used, but in the event of a grain accident it can be a lifesaving tool.
