Showing their spirit

Convoy for Cancer supporters Logan Kirkman and Mark Cissell (from top left), Eric Cissell and Ryan Lane (middle, from left), and Eric Lane (front) demonstrate their unity in spirit and cause by wearing matching shirts at Saturday’s annual Convoy for Cancer Big Truck Show in Ladd. Visitors to the annual show got to see truck cranes, fire trucks, wreckers, pick-ups and redi-mix trucks from Peoria, Bloomington, Dixon, Princeton, Peru and all over the North Central Illinois area, as well as new and antique tractors which were added to this year’s show. The event also included music by DJ Gary Swanson, door prizes, a 50/50 drawing, Relay For Life Team bake sale and food booths. All proceeds will go to benefit the American Cancer Society Relay For Life.
