September 04, 2016 - Livermore Lions Club 2016 Tractor Drive
The Livermore Lions Club selected a beautiful day for their annual Tractor Drive which benefits their Eye Screening Program! Temps were perfect with sunshine and just enough of a breeze to stay comfortable. Twenty-two tractors participated in this fundraiser. They set out from Myer Creek Park with an escort and proceeded through many of the back roads of McLean County. The destination was Sacramento at the Battle Fields where they enjoyed lunch prepared by the Lions. And then back on the roads again towards Myer Creek Park. It was a beautiful day! Thanks to all who participated in this event.

What a fantastic night for a parade! 67 degrees with no rain in sight! There were Emergency Service Vehicles, the Sheriff and Fire Trucks that really knew how to let people know they were coming - their sirens were awesome as were their lights and decorations!
The ROTC marched smartly keeping cadence and in perfect step. The McLean County High School Band played the entire route and many wore lighted units - so cool!
The floats, golf carts, UTV's , XUV's, classic cars, motor cycles and a canine-drawn buggy preceded the Jolly Ole Elf, Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus as well as Annie the Elf! What a night!

Kristine Albin led the 22 tractors from Myers Creek over the Calhoun Bridge and the Livermore Bridge to the Livermore RV Park for lunch, prepared by the Livermore Lions Club. Then they proceeded to drive back to Myers Creek via Dr. Sam Scott Drive right through the KDBA drag boat race crowds, up Main Street to Hwy 136 and then Richland Road. Quite a trip and all for the sake of "Driving for Sight".
KidSight eye screening is offered free by Lions Clubs and these type of activities help support this worthy cause.

One of the causes the Lions sponsor is the collection of old glasses and cases. These are sent to foreign countries. We also collect ink cartridges and cell phones which are used to help support Camp Cresendo. This is a camp for handicap and disabled children in Kentucky.
