It looks like there will be a new addition to Shinnston’s Frontier Days celebration this year! The Shinnston Tornadoes 4-H Club is working with the City of Shinnston to add a new feature to this year’s event – a Tractor Show – that is sponsored by Thompson’s in Worthington.
The Tractor Show will collect donations to help the local club fund more club activities as well as to help club members be able to attend 4-H Camp.
The Shinnston Tornadoes 4-H Club has members ranging in age from five and up. Their leaders are Joy Greene and Brandy Rose.
The club is seeking additional sponsors, and any business interested in helping to host this event may contact Brandy Spadafore, 4-H member lead on this project, by calling 304-203-3305 for more details on becoming a sponsor.
Anyone interested in entering the show with farm equipment, tractors, or machinery may also contact Brandy at the aforementioned number or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org.Spadafore explained that they are particularly hoping to see tractors that are pre-1990 … but no one will be turned away.
The show will be held in the grassy lot on Railroad Street owned by Junior Nuzum of Riverside Rental Properties.
There is no registration fee to enter the Tractor Show, but anyone entering who donates $20 will receive a Tractor Show tee shirt.
The club would like to see this become an annual event during Frontier Days with hopes of having more traditional events at future shows such as pedal pulls, woodworking, blacksmith shop, broom-making and more!
Monetary donations can be mailed to Joy Greene at 70 Wood St., Shinnston, WV 26431 and made payable to Shinnston Tornadoes.
