Two big donations from our community to celebrate

FARM 911 is incredibly fortunate to have such strong support from our community. This fall, we were ecstatic to receive two big donations from local businesses.

Performance Sales & Accessories held their inaugural Show & Shine in September with 50 trucks participating. They generously donated the proceeds from the event to our project.

Duffer’s Chip Wagon, owned by the Leroux family, served food at the Hastings County Plowing Match & Trade Show in August, and generously donated proceeds from sales at that event.

We are so proud to live in a community that supports agriculture, safety, and rural living. Thank you Performance Sales & Accessories and Duffer’s Chip Wagon!!

Once again, we’re reminded that this truly is a community project. We are thrilled that the Atom A Tweed Hawks hockey team generously donated the remainder of their club funds to our project. What an inspiring group!

Congratulations on a great season boys & thank you for your generosity!!

FARM 911 was thrilled to receive a very generous donation of $1600 from owner and operator of Trudeau Park Lodge, Casey Trudeau, for The Emily Project.

The staff from Oakley’s Pub at Trudeau Park Lodge ran a food booth at the Hastings County Plowing Match & Farm Show at the farm of Scott and Angela Trudeau in August of 2018 and raised money in honour of Emily Trudeau’s legacy.

FARM 911 wishes to thank Casey Trudeau and all the staff from Oakley’s Pub for your kindness and generosity to our project. The money will be used on continued efforts to raise awareness of the need for civic addresses at farm field entrances.

 

Plowing Match 2018 – One Year Since We Launched!

FARM 911 celebrated the 1-year anniversary of launching our project at the Hastings County Plowing Match. We were able to celebrate an incredible milestone at the farm of Scott and Angela Trudeau in Tweed. How fitting it was, to honour and celebrate Emily’s legacy, at her family’s farm! Thank you to the Hastings County Plowing Match & Farm Show for once again allowing us to use your venue, thank you to the Tweed Fire Department for supporting the project, and of course a big thank you to the Trudeau family for being the best ambassadors of this project.

First Sign Installation – Northumberland County

On June 12th, 2018, we celebrated the first FARM 911 sign installment in Northumberland County at the farm of Allan and Terry Carruthers. We want to thank Northumberland County for their support of this project and their efforts to have it implemented as quickly as possibly, across all 7 municipalities. Northumberland County chose to use yellow signs, as a way to let first responders know they are looking for a farming property, when responding to a call. This will help first responders find the scene of the accident, quickly and efficiently.
