Once again, we have shown that tractors aren’t just for plowing, planting, and bringing in the crops. Tractors are for fellowship, having fun, and raising money for a local Child in Floyd County. The 14th annual Floyd County Tractor Fun Run was Saturday August 21st starting at the Arlie Thompson's Farm with proceeds being donated Sweet Baby Avery Jo Link. Baby Avery has a rare genetic disorder called Apert Syndrome. The tractor parade pulled out for a 35-mile tour of spectacular Floyd County Countryside. The 64 Tractors and well over 100 Riders stopped at Shelor's Park for Lunch. After Lunch, the Coordinators auctioned off a beautiful handmade quilt that was donated by Loretta Nichols and an Antique Model B John Deere toy Tractor which was donated by Ms Minnie West. The 50/50 drawing was done and winner, Becky Flowler donated her part back for Baby Avery. Floyd County Tractor Fun Run is still excepting donations for Baby Avery just make check payable to Medical Charities and mail to Floyd County Tractor Fun Run PO Box 851 Floyd VA 24091.
It was a bittersweet day for The Coordinators, as we paid tribute to Arlie Thompson, one of Floyd County Tractor Fun Run's Coordinators. Arlie's was a life well-lived that made a lifelong impact on so many. His legacy will live on through all who knew him. His quite gentle spirit will always be missed by all of us. Arlie you will forever be in our hearts and your memory will always be part of the Floyd County Tractor Fun Run
