Pioneer Power Club to host its annual Plow Day

Pioneer Power Club, the area antique tractor and equipment club, will host its annual Plow Day on Saturday, September 28 beginning with a mandatory safety meeting at 9 a.m.

Plowing will take place on 50th Avenue South, two blocks east of Mills Fleet Farm in Alexandria.

Club members will bring their antique tractors and plows out for a day of showing how it was done years ago. Non-members may plow for a fee of $5.

The wheat stubble field is smaller this year. Those who are plowing will unload at the intersection of 50th Avenue and South Broadway. They should park along South Broadway. Spectators are encouraged to watch for no charge.

The mission of the Pioneer Power Club is to promote the interest of the public in the preservation and restoration of antique tractors, farm equipment, accessories, lore and literature.

The club’s first display of the year is its annual tractor display in April at the Viking Plaza in Alexandria. August finds the club putting on a display for the Douglas County Fair. The annual Plow Day in September finishes up the tractor season.

New members are always welcome. To join, contact the club on Facebook or sign up at Plow Day.

The club meets the fourth Monday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the LaGrand Town Hall, 501 LaGrand Townhall Road, Alexandria.
