Marked Tree Lions Hear From John Deere

Thursday, September 19, 2002

On Thursday, Sept. 12, the Marked Tree Lions Club had their regular luncheon meeting at the First United Methodist Church. Darin Goble of John Deere spoke of the newest technological developments in farming. He told the club that there is a tractor in development with global positioning, so even on a big farm, managers can identify where it is within feet. There are any number of computers on the new tractors. One even monitors when the tractor is in gear or in neutral, so the farmer can tell when the driver may be dozing under the trees in the shade somewhere. The Lions next meeting is on the fourth Thursday of this month, Sept. 26, at which time Brad Baker of Trumann who is head of the Mid-South Sight Center in Memphis will speak.

The Lions remind visitors to come walk for a cake at the Delta Jubilee the last Saturday of this month, to help those who cannot see.
