Whiteside County Fair Secretary, Mary Beth Dombroski, has announced that the fair office will be open for business beginning Monday, Aug. 6th, for the entire week prior to the 148th annual Whiteside County Fair which kicks off Aug. 14th.
From June 12-14th, the Prophetstown-Lyndon-Tampico FFA Chapter attended the 90th annual Illinois FFA State Convention held in Springfield. The local chapter took 5 members to the state’s capitol for three days.
During the three day convention state awards are presented. This year the Agricultural Education State Proficiency Winner was chapter president, Hailey Mickelson who is the daughter of Denise Mickelson of Tampico.
Farm communities are familiar with the dark blue coats that are worn by members of FFA. The jackets are emblazoned with the FFA symbol and the name of the chapter and on the front the members name. In a sense, it is the official uniform of the organization
