It was another successful annual gathering for the Stettler Antique Tractor Club as they held the pull event on the Agriplex grounds on Saturday, July 22 from 11 a.m.

“We hold the event to showcase equipment of yesteryears and we’ve been entertaining the community for five years now,” said Dan Wasyleshko, president of the club. “A huge thank you to our sponsors. Without the the sponsors the club wouldn’t be able to provide a free event for the community, or the participants that come from all across the province.
