Independent Editor,

  On Friday, Sept. 29, the Mid-Michigan Old Gas Tractor Association hosted its 15th annual Rural Living Education Day program with 580 fourth grade students participating from Chesaning, Durand, Merrill, Millington, Owosso and St. Charles Public Schools; Good Shepherd Lutheran School of Midland and Immanuel Baptist School of Corunna. 

   It is through the generous donations of time, money, food and supplies made by our M.M.O.G.T.A. members, local businesses and other individuals that we are able to put this program on; including a free lunch, at no cost to the schools or students. 

  We want to thank the following for their continued support and sponsorship:
