The "Gator Give-A-Way" was part of MCGA's summer membership drive designed to help raise awareness of the organization and its mission. Running from May 3 through Aug. 19, individuals who signed up for a new MCGA membership or renewed an existing membership were entered for a chance to win the John Deere off-road vehicle.
"I guess it is my lucky day," said Landewee. "The John Deere Gator will be very handy to have on the farm and will no doubt be put to good use. It is nice that MCGA makes an effort for its members."
The winner for the MCGA "Gator Give-A-Way" was drawn Aug. 23. Missouri Corn Director of Grower Services Gary Wheeler and MCGA board member Jim Stuever of Dexter, Mo., presented Landewee with his new John Deere Gator at his southeast Missouri farm.
"MCGA's success is rooted in our strong membership base," noted Wheeler. "There is strength in numbers and we depend on our members to provide us with a loud voice in the halls of the capitals. Through programs such as the 'Gator Give-A-Way,' we hope to show our appreciation for their commitment to the industry."
