DRIVE 4 UR SCHOOLRAISES FUNDS FOR PROJECT GRADUATION

The Ford Drive 4 UR School event was held on Thursday, October 5th at Nokomis Regional High in Newport. Varney Ford parked a variety of brand new 2017 Ford vehicles from the Ford Fusion to the F-150 and Edge. In all, six vehicles were available for licensed students, faculty, parents and community members to test drive.
For every valid test drive taken in a Ford vehicle at the one-day event, Ford would donate $20 to the participating school or community organization up to $6,000 per event. The goal at every Drive 4 UR School or Drive 4 UR Community event is to raise money for the benefit of the community.
The five hour event, with Varney Ford's help raised $2,280 dollars for project graduation. The money will be used to help pay for the destination facility in 2018 and will also help defer any costs of busing. To date, more than $35 million dollars has been raised to help Ford positively impact their communities.

BLACK DUCK, BIRD SHOT AND MINCEMEAT PIE
One Thanksgiving, 1980-something, my family was gathered around the holiday table ready to dig into creamy mashed potatoes, a roasted turkey, black duck, canned beets, string beans, homemade cranberry sauce, homemade fluffy yeast rolls and breaded stuffing.
