cloud of dust against a clear blue October sky, cut over 350 acres

used to haul the crops.
steady stream of neighborhood farmers eager to help delivered the
thousands of bushels of soybeans to nearby ADM Grain, Tabor

State Bank of Lincoln and cookies prepared by neighbors were
delivered to the fields for each volunteer.
The harvest help was certainly a
visible demonstration of how neighborhood farm families and local
businesses work together to help one another in times of need.
