The crowd gathered around Zack Ison in anticipation of the 4-wheeler raffle drawing at the Young Farm Family Cookout.
Albert Alexander (seated) was the lucky winner of the Young Farmer scholarship fund raffle—a Yamaha Grizzly 300. Making the presentation were: (left to right) Derrick Leigh of Lee’s Inc., Zack Ison, Mercer County Farm Bureau vice president and young farmer co-chair, and Jamie DeHart, Mercer County Farm Bureau president and young farmer co-chair.
The Mercer County Farm Bureau Young Farmer’s 4-wheeler raffle came to an end at the Young Farm Family Cookout on Saturday, April 13, with the drawing of Albert Alexander’s ticket. The project raised more than $3,000 for the Mercer County Farm Bureau Young Farmer Scholarship Fund. This will be the second year for the MCFB Young Farmer Scholarship presentation that will be awarded to a graduating Mercer County senior who is pursuing a college degree in agriculture.
The Young Farm Family Cookout provided many other activities and entertainment for those in attendance. The young children enjoyed the bounce house, while others played corn hole and visited the business displays. The evening ended with door prizes and then guests were surprised with the ATV raffle drawing.
