Rain backs up tractor pull

Mother Nature has forced New Vienna Tractor Pull organizers to push the event back one weekend to Sunday, Sept. 20. After a dry month of August, rain has fallen steadily over the last week causing the delay.

A record amount of pullers are expected this year with roughly 40 different classes. A lunch stand, 50/50 raffle and live and silent auctions will be taking place with the proceeds going towards the churches in New Vienna and Luxemburg.

St. Boniface in New Vienna will be doing some clock repairs with Holy Trinity in Luxemburg remodeling their bathroom to make it handicapped accessible. Any money left over will go towards updating their front entrance.

An account for cash donations was set up at Citizens State Bank in New Vienna.
