COLUMBIA CITY — American LandMaster, which recently moved its corporate headquarters to a facility just east of Columbia City, has donated an LS450 Utility Vehicle for the Whitley County 4-H Fairgrounds.
This utility vehicle will be used for maintenance and landscaping at the fairgrounds. As part of the agreement, the show barn at the fairgrounds will be named the “American LandMaster Show Barn” for a period of three years.
“At American LandMaster, we have three key pillars that support our vision of making your life easier, and one of them is ‘caring.’ We are always seeking new ways to partner with our community to help improve the lives of our friends and customers,” said Trent Marsh, American LandMaster market analyst. “The mission of 4-H, to help develop citizenship, leadership, responsibility and life skills in our youth, is a noble one. We were thrilled to find a way to partner with Whitley County 4-H and help in some small way to achieve that goal. We’re thrilled to be part of the community, and want to help the community whenever we can. As a 10-year member myself, I know the value of 4-H, and how American LandMaster can help make Whitley County 4-H, and many of its member’s lives, easier.”
