Centennial Christmas tactor

A Centennial Tractor

Thanks to Joe Schimml '62 we located the perfect tractor for the centerpiece for our Centennial Courtyard space, and a generous donation from another alumnus helped us pay for it.  It is a 1931 McCormick-Deering Farmall Regular, and it's in amazing condition for its age.  This tractor will have ties to two Centennials, as 1931 was the Centennial Year for the McCormick Reaper and records indicate they had quite the celebration too.  Plans are being made to dedicate the courtyard in April.

A small crowd joined us for our first alumni reception in conjunction with the Midwest Dairy Expo in St. Cloud, MN.  It was good to see some alumni we had not reconnected with before.  Thanks to Andy Carlson '83, on our Alumni Association Board, who helped us organize this gathering.
