Regional tractor association chapter donates $2,000 to Diversified Ag Club

NORFOLK, Neb. – Members of the regional chapter of the Hart-Parr/Oliver Collectors Association have presented a $2,000 check to a Northeast Community College agriculture club.
The donation to the Diversified Ag Club comes from proceeds generated during the association’s winter national show held earlier this year at the College’s Chuck M. Pohlman Agriculture Complex. 

The Hart-Parr/Oliver Collectors Association is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 1989 and now includes nearly 4,500 members and consists of 21 chapters. Members help preserve the history of Hart-Parr/Oliver and associated companies acquired by Hart-Parr/Oliver assist collectors in the restoration and preservation of Hart-Parr and Oliver tractors, combines and implements as well as machinery, memorabilia and other related items.

The show in Norfolk was one of two the association holds each year. It was the first time one was held in Nebraska. It featured several displays of tractors and memorabilia from collectors. Attendees came from across the United States and Canada.
