The Stevens County Fire Department was awarded a $2,500.00 donation from Talc USA, Wheeler Farms and American Implement. Lee and Lewis Wheeler of Wheeler Farms were in for a big surprise when employee, Mike Hooker opened their new bucket of Talc USA, purchased from American Implement. Inside was a green cup with a gold engraved placard congratulating him on winning their Green Cup Promotion and instructing him to return the cup to the point of purchase.
After contacting Marcus Amerin, American Implement Parts Manager, to report that a special green cup had been found in the Talc, Lee and Lewiswere thrilled to learn that they had won $500 in parts merchandise from American Implement and a $2,000 donation to a local charity/program ofAmerican Implement’s choice.

The check was presented to Rodney Kellingwith the Stevens County Fire Department on Thursday, July 27th at the American Implement location in Hugoton, Kansas.
