Graves Truck Pullers' event raises $42K

The Graves County Truck Pullers Association presented a check to the family resource and youth services centers of the Graves County Schools at the board of education’s October business meeting. The organization’s sixth annual truck and tractor pull generated some $33,500 from ticket sales. Those funds help children in need at Christmas time through projects such as the Community Christmas Connection. Spokesman Larry Wooley said concession stand proceeds benefitting the FRYSCs as well as Farmington and Symsonia elementary schools brought the total income for 2013 to $42,000. The grand total of money raised to benefit children and youth in the Mayfield and Graves County public schools over six years stands at $167,000. Superintendent Kim Harrison and board members thanked the group for their hard work and generosity.
