Welcome to Northeast Iowa: Helpful harvest ...

Monday, November 6, many community members came together to assist rural Waukon farmer Mark Miller with his corn harvest as he continues to undergo treatment for an illness. More than 30 volunteers with seven combines, 10 semi-trailer combinations and five tractors with grain carts harvested 185 acres of corn in six hours (as depicted in the surrounding photos). Adding to the rural northeast Iowa feel, none of those involved wanted to be identified, relaying that the focus should be on the reason behind the event itself. The corn was hauled to Waukon Feed Ranch for drying and Kruger Seeds provided the fuel for the event. In addition to the work in the field, a lunch was also coordinated by volunteers to feed those involved. Submitted photos.
