New Baden Fire Department Received Monsanto Donation

Clinton County farmer Martin Graul was selected as a winner in America’s Farmers Grow Communities, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund. District Sales Manager with Monsanto Brian Rudolphi told us the program’s purpose is to recognize and celebrate the important contribution farmers make in rural America and to help them grow their communities by supporting local organizations that are important to them.

Graul selected the New Baden Fire Department, where he is a volunteer, as the recipient of a $2,500 donation. The donation will allow the department to upgrade the 25-year-old power unit for its Jaws of Life hydraulic rescue tool.
