An autumn tractor ride drew over 30 tractors from three states for a two-day ride in Bluff Country. The ride, sponsored by the Preston Historical Society, drew tractors from Iowa and Wisconsin as well as Minnesota. “People wagons” and “buddy seats” held additional riders so almost sixty people enjoyed two rides of approximately sixty miles each day of the September 14 weekend.

The first day ride took them from the Fairgrounds in Preston, using area black top roads, to Fountain, Chatfield, Fillmore, Wykoff, Cherry Grove and return to Preston. The Sunday ride again left from the Fairgrounds traveling to Harmony, Canton, Lenora, Lanesboro and returning to Preston.

A dance to Lost Faculties was held on Saturday evening at the Fairgrounds sponsored by the Fillmore County Ag Society. Meals were catered by the Silver Grille, Chatfield; the Fillmore County Cattleman and the Branding Iron Supper Club; the B & B Bowl, and a Preston Historical Society committee.

Additional area businesses were sponsors assisting with the event: Preston Dairy & Farm; Hammell Equipment, Chatfield & Harmony; Gehling Auction; First Southeast Bank, Harmony & Canton; Preston Equipment; S & A Petroleum, Lanesboro; Root River State Bank, Chatfield & First State Bank, Fountain; Preble Farmers Mutual, Lanesboro; St. Joseph Equipment, Chatfield; KFIL & KVGO; the JailHouse Inn, Preston; the Fillmore County Ag Society, Greg M. Davids Financial Services, Preston; Kelly Printing, Preston, POET, Biorefining; Marzolf Implement, Spring Valley; F & M Community Bank, Preston & Chatfield.

Area law enforcement personal assisted with traffic and major turning locations. They included the police department staff from Preston, Chatfield, Harmony, and Lanesboro as well as the Fillmore County Sheriff’s Department.
