Lucky winner Tayler Makenna!
The Pink Tractor/John Deere queen-size quilt,
crafted by Arlyce Baker as a fundraiser for the Alcouffe Community Center. The winning ticket was
drawn at the 2012 Vintage Tractor Days event in Oregon House in May. According to her mother,
Tayler loves tractors and zebras, and when she spotted the quilt at the Colusa County farm show,
she fell in love with it.
The 1945 Ford 2N two-tone pink vintage tractor has proven to be a huge hit.
After debuting at last year´s Vintage Tractor Days, the one-of-a-kind machine
appeared at numerous events throughout the following year, including parades,
car swaps, tractor shows, fairs, and farm shows. Everywhere it went, the feisty
little vehicle attracted enthusiastic fans.
Many community volunteers and tractor hobbyists contributed to the restoration
of the vintage machine, which was donated by the local Forguson family.
Some contributing individuals and businesses include Martin Auto Color Services,
Les Schwab Tire Center, Valley Truck and Tractor, and Post Net of Yuba City,
Jody Stover of Placer Tractor Supply in Grass Valley, Rick Lopez of Loomis,
Rick Snow of Hood, Superior Radiator of Marysville,
Ben Goff and Josh Truchak of Oregon House, and Rick Baucum of Penn Valley.

The 8th Annual Vintage Tractor Days took place Saturday, May 5 and Sunday, May 6 at Eventful Acres,
9454 Yuba Ranch Way in Oregon House. This is biggest vintage farming event in northern California with about
200 tractors participating. The two-day celebration is a major fundraiser for
the Alcouffe Community Center .
The show is very popular with families as well as tractor hobbyists–because it offers all kinds of entertainment:
hayrides, tractor parades, tractor competitions, kids´ games, food, specialty vendors, and music.
If you are looking for a fun-filled, educational, inexpensive Vintage Farming event for your family, this is it!
A big highlight of this year´s event was the drawing of the winning raffle ticket for the now
famous Pink Tractor, a 1945 Ford 2N tractor with a two-tone pink finish which was restored as a fundraiser
to benefit both the Community Center and the American Cancer Society.
The American Cancer Society was on
hand to accept a check for $10,000.00, 50% of the raffle proceeds.
