WILMINGTON — Rod’s Project Farm Market and Trade Days was held Friday and Saturday at Clinton County Fairgrounds.
The event featured vendors plus pedal tractor pull, petting zoo, car show, horse show, demonstrations and more until it was cut short by thunderstorms Saturday afternoon.
Rod’s Project is named for the late East Clinton student and FFA member Rod Danes.
“Rod loved his high school, and we at Rod’s Project are indebted to the great experience and education we received there. That’s why we offer financial and other assistance to those amenities within the school that do not receive funding such as the library,” states the mission at RodsProject.org.
“Rod was known for his giving, always ready-to-help attitude. Rod’s Project helps any East Clinton High School student involved in agriculture with financial assistance for FFA dress uniforms, FFA camp and convention scholarships, 4-H projects, and other similar activities.”
Rod’s Project awards two $1,000 scholarships annually for any East Clinton High School student who wants to major in agriculture at an accredited higher education institution.
