Attention: students who would like to earn great money in a short time this summer!!  Come detassel with Scar Detasseling!  Pay is up to $12 an hour, plus bonuses!  This is a GREAT job for people who are in sports or other activities, because you can make a lot of money in a short amount of time, and it frees up the rest of your year to do other things.  The season usually lasts approximately two to three weeks in July.  A bus will pick up workers in Martensdale and other small towns on the way to Ankeny.  If interested, please sign up in the office by May 4th (you must be at least 14 years old) and someone will call you soon to give you more details and talk to you about why detasseling is such a great summer job!
