St Patrick's Parade 1 PM, Tractor Show 2 PM, and Heroes Pull for Special Olympics 2:30 PM - Shawnee, KS - March 11
The Shawnee Saint Patrick’s Parade was held on March 11th starting at 1 PM. It was a bit blustery on the ride to and from the parade, but there was plenty of smiles and green along the route. There were 10 tractors and 1 golf cart to brave the chilly day. Leading the parade was Dusty & Farrah Meyer - 37 JD A, Joe & Brandon Meyer - 37 D, Justin & Dalamar Read - 41 JD H, Troy Mooney & Melanie Pye - 49 JD A, Jon Pirie - 49 JD MT, Chris & Calvin Meyer - 51 JD R, Jay Pruett - 57 JD 620, Don Hrabik - 59 JD 430W, Jon McPherson - 60 JD 730, Marvin Halvorsen - 83 JD 420 LGT, and Megan Pruett, Avery Pruett, Amanda Pruett, & Cameron Seever on the Pruett “BLING” Golf Cart. After the parade several of us parked our tractor across from the Hero’s Pull for a display. Those of us that stayed for the Hero’s Pull got to watch grown men and women pull a 24,000 lb Bear Cat and a 32,000 lb Fire Truck to raise money and awareness for Special Olympics Kansas. The Club was a sponsor of the Heroes Pull and the Club’s name is on the event t-shirt. Put it on your calendar for next year. Visit www.heroespull.org for more info on the event.
