Jeff Attig and the Eliza Lions Club will conduct a tractor ride on August 30th to honor the memory of Lions club founder and local farmer Ken Cox who passed away last September. Registration for the ride will take place at the Mercer county fair grounds at 7 a.m. (coffee and donuts served), and depart the fairgrounds around 8 a.m. A southern route via the Sunbeam road will be followed to New Windsor where a lunch will be catered. After the lunch break the ride will take a northern route mostly via Ridge Road back to Aledo, with a leg passing the Aledo nursing home included. Anyone with questions or volunteering to assist in the first of what is hopefully an annual event is asked to call Jeff at 309 371 7721 or Dick Nash at 563 260 5905.
