Calling All Farm and Military Vehicles

Calling All Farm & Military Vehicles

Join Will County farmers and veterans who oppose the 30k MORE trucks every day ~ plus ~ an additional 32k employee cars in the area of Route 53 in Elwood that will certainly impact not only farming operations countywide, but also Abe Lincoln Cemetery Funeral processions! Our parade will demonstrate the size and slow speed of our vehicles, so combines and larger equipment are encouraged, but not required. The issue goes before the Elwood Planning & Zoning Commission on 1/11/18 at 7 p.m. for its first vote toward creating a trucking facility 3x the size of Midway Airport!
