Truckin' for cancer research

Organizers of the 2014 “Convoy Against Cancer” Big Truck Show are inviting area residents to attend this year’s annual event, set for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday on Ladd’s Main Street. Spokesperson Phil Hocking says the Convoy for Cancer show is intended to offer vehicle owners and enthusiasts something different while benefiting a good cause — the American Cancer Society Relay For Life.

A new addition to this year’s line-up will be farm tractors, both new and antique. Registration fees are a donation to the American Cancer Society. Local businesses have donated door prizes and silent auction items ranging from toys to trucking essentials. Saturday’s event will also include music by DJ Gary Swanson, door prizes, a 50/50 drawing, a Relay For Life Team bake sale, T-shirts for sale, and food booths. Admission to the show is free to the public.

All proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society Relay For Life.
