Efforts to raise $40,000 by May in support of local agriculture students and in memory of a Lyon County man who died last year got off to a strong start last week thanks to Lyon County Farm Bureau.

Lyon County Farm Bureau President John Rudolph, presented a check to Lyon County School Superintendent Russ Tilford and Principal Ryan Amerson in the amount of $10,000 to go toward construction of a greenhouse in memory of Tony Ellis. The greenhouse will be used by local agriculture students once it's completed.

Anyone interested donating to the project can contact Tilford at 270-388-9715.
