Antique tractor show planned at Valley Mall

An antique tractor show will be held at Valley Mall from March 19 to 25. Antique tractors and farm equipment will be on display, presented by the Washington County Antique Tractor Club.

The Hagerstown area club is comprised of a group of men, women and youths interested in preserving the history of farm tractors, farm equipment and to share knowledge with anyone who is interested in learning more about the history of farming in the county.

Each year, the club provides a scholarship to one graduate of the Tri-State area who enters a program of advanced studies leading to a degree in agriculture/natural resources. Scholarship applications are accepted through April.
