Ag Club to sponsor toy show

DANVILLE — The Danville Area Community College Ag Club will sponsor its 25th Annual Farm Toy Show in the Mary Miller Gym 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Jan. 27.

The show will consist of farm toys in a variety of sizes of reproduction. Scale models as small as 1/64th the actual size will be shown. The general public will be given the opportunity to buy, sell, or trade toys with area collectors and dealers. There will be door prize drawings about every half-hour, and at 1:30 p.m. a kiddie tractor pull for kids ages 3 to 10 will be conducted. A concession stand will be available.

Admission is $2 for adults and free for those 11 and under. Proceeds will go to the Ag Club Activity fund and the annual Ag Day fund. Last year, the Ag Club supplied the meal for more than 1,800 people for 50 cents, the price farmers receive for the raw inputs of the meal, at the annual Ag Day.

For information or to plan an exhibit, contact Craig Potter at (217) 443 8805 or (217) 443-8816 or e-mail potter@dacc.edu.
