    An all-day tractor and truck pull will be held Saturday, Oct. 31 at the Elk Lodge on Route 20 in Chestertown, Md. To benefit Townsend resident and farmer David Daniels, a 34-year employee of Hoober Inc., who was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma three years ago and recently contracted a kidney infection.
    Dave has been a combine service manager and retains the title since having to take leave of absence to recover. His equipment repair expertise and outgoing personality have made him very well respected by his fellow employees and customers.
    The tractor pull will raise funds for Dave’s medical bill. Dave has been a huge fan and participant in past tractor pulls, but this year he will be sitting on the sideline, supported by friends, family and co=workers.
    Registration for the event will begin at 8 a.m. and the pull is expected to go into the evening. The parking fee will be $5 per vehicle and tax deductible donations made be made to the M.O.T. Big Ball Marathon with a memo of “Dave Daniels Fund.”
    The pull will start at 10 a.m. with antiques and classics. Pro Farm tractors will pull at 4 p.m., followed by pick-ups and semi-trucks. Hoober Inv., family and friends have worked together to make this an exciting event. The Elk Lodge is providing the track at no charge and will sell food for the event. There will also be a raffle for the new Case IH Scout recreational vehicle, which will be on display. Tickets are $6 each or two for $10. Tickets may be purchased in advance at Hoober Inc. There also will be a 50/50 raffle, a silent auction and a bake table available.
