Northern Maine Antique Tractor Club To Hold
10th Annual Memorial Tractor Trek
To Benefit Hospice of Aroostook and Aroostook House of Comfort
The Northern Maine Antique Tractor Club, (NMATC), will host their 10th Annual “Memorial Tractor Trek,” on Sunday, Aug. 13th, in the St. John Valley area.
This year’s trek will start at 9:00 a.m. in Frenchville. Registration is at 8:00 a.m. The trek will continue from Frenchville to Madawasksa to Pelletier Island to St Agatha and back to Frenchville. The estimated distance for the trek is about 40 miles.
All donations are greatly accepted and will be given to both Hospice of Aroostook and the “House of Comfort” Hospice House Project. Donations of $25 in memory of a loved one will also be honored by placing their name on a Memory Board that will be mounted on the body of an antique farm truck that will lead the trek.
The public is invited to participate with their antique tractors, but must be a member of the NMATC for insurance purposes. Memberships will be accepted the day of the trek. Forms are also available on the club website at www.nmatc.org.
Established in 2008, The Northern Maine Antique Tractor Club is a family oriented organization with currently over 300 members, focused on the preservation of our rural heritage and restoration of the “old tractors”, equipment and related items that were used in the farming industry by past generations. It is also the club’s mission to build an awareness of our local agricultural heritage to present and future generations in Northern Maine and New Brunswick, Canada.
