Crossing the Finish Line: great-G-giveaway
The great-G-giveaway has left White Bluff, TN. CONGRATULATIONS Mr. Bill from New York. Mr Bill is 70 years young & stated he has wanted a G for several years. Bill stated his neighbor had one he was hoping to purchase, but he sold it. Then a few weeks later Dan M. & I called him stating he won this G. Mr. Bill called us back the next day thinking it was a scam a joke we were pulling his leg. Even had someone else call us asking. Well, today was no joke Mr. Bill drove 1020 miles to pick up the great-G-giveaway tractor. Jamie & I hoped it would go to a good home & after meeting Mr. Bill we think that is the case. He let Jamie load it because he stated Jamie was more used to it than he was. Mr Bill has a B & 330 & 5020 and a few other tractors at home in New York so the G will have good company. This is the first G to leave our home & not be coming back, but Jamie & I are thrilled it has a new home. Again, Congratulations to Mr. Bill Hanehan.
At the CGR23 banquet on Saturday night we drew a name to win a new John Deere pedal tractor. The drawing was for anyone under the age of 17. The winner was Camden Wilson from western Indiana. Today I had the privilege of delivering that pedal tractor to Camden. To say the least he was very excited. Congratulations to Camden and his family. I think we might have a new Classic Green fan for life. It was a great experience and they are such a nice family. Three little boys ages 5, 4 and almost 3. Camden is the youngest.

Classic Green & Elkmont High School FFA BN Project
We are excited to announce that Classic Green has partnered with the Elkmont High School FFA to restore a BN to raffle off similar to the great G giveaway. The Elkmont FFA is in Elkmont, AL. Between now and CGR23 the advisor Brianne & her students will share their progress with us through updates they will post along the way. We look forward to getting to know them and learning along with them through this project. Please join us in encouraging these FFA students. We are excited!
Here are some photos of our first meeting & the picking up of the BN
