The Southern Cove Power Reunion Association held its annual Spring Plow Days & Tractor Show on Saturday, April 27, near New Enterprise.

The event had been postponed on April 20 because of rain.

Approximately 150 people participated in the event with their tractors. There were more than 100 spectators enjoying the event from the bleachers. Fields were plowed and the men demonstrated the use of two pieces of equipment in the sawmill to make boards.

This year a 1969 Ford, 8-speed tractor, blue and gray in color, will be raffled off. Tickets can be purchase at each tractor pull event. The drawing will be held on Sunday, Sept. 15. Admission is free to events and food is available for purchase at a reasonable price.
