Evergreen cemetery in Backus receives donated mower


With the financial support of the Backus American Legion’s charitable gaming program, a mower manufacturer and DC’s Motor Sports and Small Engine of Backus, the community’s Evergreen Cemetery received a gift of a new Hustler commercial/industrial, zero-turn 54-inch mower.

The Legion donated $8,500, the Hustler manufacturer awarded a 10 percent discount and DC’s — where the mower was purchased — donated $500. The cemetery received $500 for trading in its 1996 mower.
