Tractors for Charity hosted its 3rd Annual Antique Tractor,
Truck and Construction Equipment Show this past October.
Businesses, residents and collectors from northern Illinois raised
more than $16,000 for charity. The F.I.S.H. of McHenry Food Pantry
will get $13,000. Big Brothers and Big Sisters will get $1,000. The
City of McHenry will get $2,000 to help restore and maintain
historic barns on the Petersen farmstead. Saving our rural heritage
and its architecture is important for our history. We hope you can
join us next Oct. 4-5, 2008. Visit our website at www.tractors
forcharity.com for more information.
