Com­bines and trucks were rolling, dust was fly­ing, and wheat was flow­ing on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 27 as lo­cal farm­ers once again vol­un­teered their time, equip­ment and good will for Stan­dard’s Mem­ory Lane Park pro­ject. The Stan­dard Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­ity En­hance­ment So­ci­ety’s 160-acre fundraiser wheat crop was har­vested at last, and hauled away ei­ther to grain el­e­va­tors or to avail­able stor­age bins. On short no­tice, six com­bines, seven trucks and at least 14 vol­un­teers ap­peared and fin­ished the job that af­ter­noon and evening. A huge thank you goes out to all who made this pos­si­ble. What great sup­port for the Mem­ory Lane pro­ject!
