Thankful For Community

Area farmers banded together to help harvest corn on the Zuehlke farm on Friday and Saturday. A sign was placed near one of the cornfields in honor of Trevor Zuehlke (#10) who remains hospitalized after suffering a severe head injury in the final regular season football game. A benefit for the Zuehlke family is also planned at the Britton Area Event Center on Saturday.
