OTTAWA -- Thanks to a Carleton Place automobile dealership, the Ottawa Valley Farm Show was able to take its 90th Anniversary promotion on the road over the past several months.
Keith Bean, of Bean Chevrolet Buick GMC Ltd., provided the complimentary pickup truck decked out in the farm show's bright new logo and eye-catching rural scenes.
The truck has attended several fairs, Christmas parades and farm meetings across Eastern Ontario and beyond in advertising the 90th edition of the farm show March 14-16.
"The truck was a hit everywhere it went," said Arlene Ross, Secretary-Treasurer of the Ottawa Valley Seed Growers Association, which organizes the farm show. "People commented on how good it looked and asked questions about the 90th anniversary," added Ross who had primary custody of the vehicle. "It was a very generous contribution from Keith Bean."
The truck will be parked at the EY Centre entrance for the three days of the farm show.
