Everyone is invited you do not need a tractor to participate in the fun. The rides consist of driving by our senior nursing homes for these are the tractors that they once used in their day. Then off to a scenic tour of our beautiful country sides. Noon we return to the airport for a (free will donation) lunch provided by our local Boy Scout Troop #108. After lunch a presentation by Alzheimer's Alliance ( 12:30 -1:00) Afternoon ride begins around 1:15 pm travels by one of our senior nursing homes and then off to another beautiful ride in the country.
