Four youngsters from Sheboygan County who completed the tractor safety training course which is required for anyone under age 16 to legally operate farm tractors are among the five who have been awarded scholarships by the Lakeshore Two Cylinder Club.

The five winners were among the 22 who attended a training camp on the weekend of March 31 to April 2 at the 4-H Camp TaPaWingo near Mishicot in northern Manitowoc County. The course was taught by Manitowoc County Extension Service 4-H agent Kevin Palmer.

Each of the five scholarship winners received $125 from the club. The winners and their families were guests at the group’s annual picnic and awards program at the Meeme Town Hall at School Hill.

Jared Luebke, the son of Bill and Kelly Luebke, is operating tractors on his father’s farm. Jared will be a sophomore at Howards Grove High School.

Oliver Sheets of Greenbush, who will be in seventh grade at Riverview Middle School in Plymouth, is the son of Brian and Kim Sheets. He will be operating tractors for his father and his grandfather Jim Sheets.

Mason Fleck will be a freshman at Plymouth High School. The son of Kevin and Melissa Fleck, he will be a tractor driver on his grandfather Gordon Feldmann’s farm.

Parker Glander, the son of Gary and Becky Glander, will be a seventh grader at the Sheboygan Falls Middle School. He drives tractors on the farm of his grandfather Donald Buckman.

The fifth winner was Trevor Fiecko of Manitowoc, who will be a freshman at Manitowoc Roncalli High School. The son of Mike and Janelle Fiecko is driving tractors on his uncle Gerald Rank’s farm.

With most of its members living in Manitowoc and Sheboygan counties, the Lakeshore Two Cylinder Club is dedicated to preserving vintage tractors (John Deere provides the Two Cylinder wording) while also having a strong interest in safe practices on tractor operation by upcoming generations.

Among the club’s activities is its annual tractor and wagon ride, which will be staged on Sunday, Oct. 1 this year.

All interested persons are invited to a free late morning chili dinner that day at the Meeme Town Hall in School Hill before the caravan takes off at 12 noon for a three-hour excursion in the surrounding countryside in southern Manitowoc County.
