Just before the priest’s blessing of the tractors and seeds April 25 in St. Stephen, Aiden Vandenberg, 4, sits on his little Case tracker next to his grandfather’s big version of his Case. Aiden’s tractor trailer contains a bag of corn seed. The blessing by Father Ron Weyrens occurred during a weekend to commemorate the 150th birthday of the Catholic Church of St. Stephen. Aiden is the son of Jeff and Amy Vandenberg of Foley.
