This past year has brought some challenges, but that hasn't stopped GreenStone’s Ionia Branch find ways to stay engaged in the community!
The Ionia Farm Power Show was cancelled last year, but bringing it back this year has returned the joy of volunteering into our employees' lives. The Ionia Farm Power Club continues to plant seeds of success for the show, offering fun events for friends and family!
The Ionia Farm Power Show was created to bring an exciting weekend to those who have a passion for tractors – of all colors, sizes, and uses. They have a variety of activities, from tractor pulls, raffles, pie contests, cornhole, and so much more. From June 18-21 this year, there was something for all families to engage in, which is what makes this show so unique. There's even a campsite to stay at the fairgrounds for the entire weekend. All donations and proceeds go towards the Ionia County 4-H.
There's a reason one of GreenStone’s four core values is “getting involved." We believe in the positive impact and connection that comes from constantly helping those in our community. For several years, GreenStone staff have volunteered to serve breakfast at the Ionia Farm Power Show throughout the weekend, which enables us to stay engaged with the community and support those who enjoy farming as much as we do!
We had several GreenStone employees help with the food booths this year, including Collin Nurenberg, Matthew Platte, Kimberly Clum, Elizabeth Conley, and retired GreenStone staff member, Cynthia Cole, who has been involved in this effort for over 20 years.
GreenStone is already excited to volunteer at next year’s Farm Power Show! To find out more information about the Ionia Farm Power Club or if you are interested in attending next year, please visit: Ionia Farm Power – The Ionia Farm Power Club.
