The Angel Tractor

For the past few years our club has restored an old piece of iron for a special group of kids. They live in a very special place called “Holy Angels of Belmont, NC”. It’s a home for medically fragile and handicapped children. One of our members has a grandchild there and he brought them to our attention as kids that need extra care and love to live. Their greatest need was a therapy room of unique design to stimulate the children. So we introduced the First Angel tractor in 1997, it became a huge success story and every year since we have endeavored to help these loving kids less fortunate than ourselves.

We sell tickets for chances on the tractor and travel to many area shows with it. They are 1 for $1 and 6 for $5. Make checks payable to “Holy Angels”. Here is a list of the tractors and drawing winners. Anyone wanting tickets can call or write to:Power of the Past, P.O. Box 2244, Huntersville, NC 28070, or E-mail us, you need not be present to win and we can deliver the tractor to a winner in any of the 48 States. The drawing is at our Spring Show and is drawn by a resident of the home. Or better yet come see us!
