Letter to the editor: Arcola celebrates 60th truck and tractor pull

Wednesday, July 9, 2014 - 12:01 am

On June 26-28, the Arcola National Truck and Tractor Pull celebrated 60 years of pulling. The event was our most successful ever, thanks to the more than 300 volunteers who made this fundraiser possible.

The proceeds from this event fund about half the annual budget of the Arcola Volunteer Fire Department.

The steering committee would like to thank the volunteers, spectators and competitors for once again making the Arcola National Truck and Tractor Pull a spectacular and memorable event. We also appreciate the wonderful story Kevin Kilbane wrote regarding our 60th anniversary celebration and history of the pull.
