Along for the Ride
Landmark Hosts Lunch for East Central Benefit Tractor Cruise
COTTAGE GROVE, WI, August 31, 2018 – Landmark Services Cooperative (LSC) was excited to host lunch for the East Central Benefit Tractor Cruise in Markesan, WI on August 25, 2018. Farmers have a long history of feeding their neighbors, and it’s fitting that this tractor cruise continues that tradition. LSC was proud to be part of this great cause and served over 100 riders.
The ride is held each year to raise money for local food pantries. The cruise also benefits public schools’ student basic needs funds, which provide necessities for children whose families cannot otherwise afford them. Funds come from the entry fee, along with collected pledges and business sponsorships.
“This is a great group of people to be around and help support their initiative to assist those in need. It is always a great time watching farmers and non-farmers get on a tractor and have a fun time. Giving back and volunteering is very rewarding and something I truly enjoy,” commented Amy Badtke, energy account manager of LSC.
The tenth annual ride around the Ripon countryside had an estimated 50 riders cruising country roads. Tractors traveled along routes throughout Green Lake and Fond Du Lac counties, stopping for lunch at Landmark in Markesan.
