Tractor re-gifted to Good Cheer

The coveted 1949 Ford tractor is now up for auction to benefit Good Cheer.

The first winner of the tractor raffle, Oak Harbor resident Andy Nielson, donated the tractor back to the organization. An auction will be held to find it a new home.

The tractor was originally donated to Good Cheer Food Bank by Patrick and Karen Scott and is valued at $3,900.

“It’s the gift that keeps on giving,” said Shawn Nowlin, community outreach coordinator for Good Cheer.

Auction forms need to be filled out by 5 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6, and sent to the Good Cheer Bayview office at 2812 Grimm Road, Langley. For more information, visit or any Good Cheer location.
