Mans­field Ma­sonic Lodge #489 will host the 2nd An­nual La­mar Hays An­tique Trac­tor Show Satur­day, Oct. 20 from 10:00 a.m. un­til 3:00 p.m.

Ad­mis­sion is free. The event is a com­bi­na­tion of the Mans­field Ma­sonic Lodge’s an­nual BBQ and a trac­tor show with com­pet­i­tive cat­e­gories such as most orig­i­nal, best in show, and many more. The judges of the com­pe­ti­tion are not af­fil­i­ated with the lodge.

Sev­eral other at­trac­tions are go­ing to be at the show, in­clud­ing, but not lim­ited to: live mu­sic, ven­dors, and a “Chips Event,” dur­ing which a pro­file will be cre­ated for any chil­dren in at­ten­dance that will help lo­cate and iden­tify him/her in case of emer­gency. This is also free of charge.

This event is be­ing held to raise money for the lodge and will go to­ward sev­eral dif­fer­ent causes in the community.

“We try to help fam­i­lies in the community that have fallen into bad times,” said Ray Sikes. “It’s our way of giv­ing back to the community... When we help peo­ple, we don’t re­ally pub­lish it a lot; we just do it to help them out be­cause they sup­port us throughout the en­tire year.”

If any­one would like to place their trac­tor in the com­pe­ti­tion for judg­ing, you can do so up un­til the day of the event.

The lodge is still ac­tively look­ing for spon­sors who may choose to do­nate from $75 to $200; the dead­line to sign up for a spon­sor­ship is next Fri­day, Oct. 5.

Ven­dors can still sign up to have booths at the event; the sign-up cost is $35. For more in­for­ma­tion, you can contact joan@haystrac­tor. com or call (770) 7863334.
