(Kinde – North Huron) – Throughout the Thumb region, you can always tell when the school year is coming to a close, as various farm implements fill school parking lots. Wednesday morning was Drive Your Tractor to School Day at the North Huron Schools, which resulted in the parking lot along M-53 looking more like a implement dealers lot than a school.
Agriscience Teacher and FFA Advisor Joe Ankley said the school has been doing this for many years, with the last three years having it during Senior Week at the school. This year, they had 18 tractors, sprayers and combines, the same number of units as last year.
Organizers said because some farmers are still planting, there were a few other pieces of equipment showing up in place of tractors.
