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.

For some reason the changing of the seasons has always fascinated me. Watching the colors of the earth change from summer to fall to winter and on to spring, is such an amazing gift the good Lord has given us.
