On Friday, June 7, the Power of Yesteryear tractor club held a tractor ride in conjunction with the Wood County Historical Center and Museum in recognition of Heritage Days.
This 18-mile ride took us around the west side and then down Main Street of Bowling Green. The tractor ride was a huge and safe success due in part to the assistance of several departments and individuals. We wish to recognize and thank everyone who played a role in our success.
Jackie Dubler, administrative secretary, who assisted with the permit process and John Fawcett, municipal administrator, who approved the permit. From the Bowling Green Police Department, Lieutenant Dan Mancuso for escorting us through town. Sergeant Paul Tyson, and Patrolmen Scot Becker and Brian Houser for securing the intersections assuring that we were able to stick together.
From the Wood County Sheriff's Office, Sheriff Mark Wasylyshyn for his advice and making available Deputies Hobart Johnson and Earl Morse from the Sheriff's Auxiliary who escorted us from the County Museum and secured the major intersections in the rural areas.
Finally we wish to thank all who stood in their yards, driveways and on sidewalks who waved and took pictures. We hope you enjoyed watching us go by as much as we enjoyed seeing you. Without you it wouldn't be a parade. See you next year.
