28 Drivers traveled the scenic roads of Ontario’s garden on their heritage tractor for our annual Heritage Tractor Drive. The drive incorporated stops throughout the day that provided participants with a unique perspective of all that Norfolk County has to offer.

Stops included  Clonmel Estate, Norview Lodge and New Limburg Brewery (former Nixon Public School). 

Drivers and their families were then invited to return to WHAM for a delicious meal served by our fabulous volunteers.
