Ride the River is back! Tractor enthusiasts from all over are invited to bring their tractors and participate in the 2016 “Ride the River” Vintage Tractor Ride, scheduled for Saturday, August 27, 2016.
The goal of this event is to raise funds to help support students of the Central, Dwight, Herscher, Iroquois West, Manteno, Peotone, River Valley and Tri Point FFA chapters, while providing tractor riders with an opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the Kankakee River Valley.
In 2014 our Ride The River event raised $7,000 and helped 7 of our local FFA chapters. With the ongoing state budget crisis in Illinois, it is now more important than ever to support the FFA. Ride the River 2016 will help ensure continued growth for our local FFA chapters.
