Only nine students participated in the annual Tractor Day this year. Eight tractors were driven in the parade on Friday, March 23, with one of those tractors carrying a guest. The students who participated were Lacey Tierney, Jelene Weerda, Jared Cunningham, Kain Viel, Jacob Bryden, Brennan Burkhart, Ivan Viel, Bryce Bryden and Dylan Watts. Most of the tractors driven were newer.

The weather was brisk, with temperatures hovering around the freezing mark, as students assembled with their tractors at the DeLong Grainery on Alworth Road. Once they all got together they proceeded in the traditional route down N. Elida Road to the high school, escorted by a police car.
