Sunday, June 24th will be the day we gather for the 16th Annual WHO Tractor Ride but without the two founders of the ride. We may find ourselves feeling a little sad without their presence but it won't last long if you knew Mark, because a smile or even a giggle will occur as you remember a story or something he did on the ride. We want everyone to share stories, pictures and items that created a memory for you. Please go through your pictures and bring a written story that we can post in a special area in the registration building. Please remember to add your name to all items as we will want you to take them home on Tuesday night. The WHO Staff and the Pearson Family have created a video of pictures that will play continuously play all day Sunday and each afternoon as Tractors come back from the days route.
We will also be doing some activities as the "WHO Tractor Family" each day on the ride.
John Deere "70" Day
All Tractor Drivers can get a Special Decal at the CTI (Centerville Tractor & Implement) Booth to display on your tractor on Monday. The Decal was created just for the WHO Tractor Ride by CTI and is in Memory of Mark Pearson. All donations for the decals will go directly to the Heifer Foundation in which Mark supported. Drivers are not limited to just one decal. All Drivers are encouraged to wear their John Deere Green on Monday!
Dew Rag Tuesday!
No one could wear a Dew Rag on their head while driving a tractor better than Mark Pearson so please pick up your Dew Rag for Tuesday during registration from Frank at G & L Clothing or Jane at Titan Tire…you can wear it around your head or around your neck….or just hang it from your Tractor.
Yes, we are going to reverse the order the Tractors as they leave on Wednesday Morning. The Yellow group (14 mph) will lead us out of town with the Blue Group bringing up the rear! Since we are reversing the Tractors feel free to reverse other items or articles of clothing.
Thank you for participating in the 16th Annual WHO Tractor Ride!
