AURORA, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska Vocational Agricultural Center in Aurora is getting a new roof, kitchen and dining area through a federal loan.

USDA Rural Development says a nearly $1.3 million loan will help pay for the upgrades. The loan will be used for upgrades at the center and to refinance existing debt.

The USDA loan will be repaid over 40 years, with a 4 percent interest rate.

The Nebraska Vocational Agricultural Foundation was founded in 1968, and the property was purchased for Nebraska Future Farmers of America leadership camps. The first camp was held in 1971.
