"Last Chance" Tractor Show

Submitted by Gerry Halpin


The Coon Creek Men’s Club will no longer be holding their Farm Toy Show.  Instead, they will host the 1st Annual “Last Chance” Tractor and Equipment Show on Sunday, October 14th.  This will give local equipment owners a “last chance” to show their tractors and equipment before putting things away for the winter.


Eclipse Lawn Mowers will be featured
at the tractor show.

The show will be held from 10 AM to 2PM at Eclipse Square, and will feature all pre- 1975 tractors and farm equipment.  A short tractor ride around Prophetstown will also be held at the end of the show. Eclipse lawn mowers (made in

Prophetstown from 1904-1961) will also be featured.  Admission is free, and concessions will be available; please bring your lawn chairs. For more information, please call Gerry Halpin at 815-499-3531.


The Men’s Club would like to thank all the volunteers who helped make the Farm Toy Show a success for the past 32 years.  From the show over $35,000 was raised for community projects in the area.
