MPCA Hosts 2nd Annual Tractor Trail Ride Saturday, September 25th

Millboro, VA – The Millboro Preservation and Cultural Association is sponsoring a unique fundraiser on Saturday September 25. It’s their second annual tractor trail ride. Come drive your tractor or ride along on a hay wagon to raise money for the old Millboro school.

Last year’s ride had about 24 tractors and around 50 people. This year the ride starts at the old Millboro School. Lunch will be provided by Bill and Barbara Chambers at their farm along the way. The ride will finish up around 3pm.

Tractor drivers must follow established rules and attend a meeting at 9am before the ride begins at 10, according to Jackie Plecker, President of the Millboro Preservation and Cultural Association.

“The main rule is that everything has to have a slow moving vehicle sign” says Plecker “and of course, there’s no alcohol allowed.”

The route will cover approximately 40 miles through Bath County and part of Augusta County. The ride will leave from Millboro, travel into Deerfield and then to Route 39 back to Millboro. Cost is $10 per tractor and $10 per person for wagon riders, which includes lunch. Registration starts at 9am and the ride will be held rain or shine.

The tractor trail ride is a fundraiser for the restoration of the old Millboro School. It’s Saturday September 25 beginning at 10am at the school. Entry fees may be paid the day of the ride but you must pre register. Call 540-996-4428 or 540-996-4111.
