Tractors are leaving the farms and heading to the streets for one local fundraiser.

The Old Steam and Gas Club of Dresden, is hosting it’s third annual fundraiser to help raise money for the Breaking Free Therapeutic Riding Center in Norwich. The organization provides equatrian therapy for special needs children.

"We do therapeutic riding for kids with special needs and we bring kids in here that have different types of disabilities and we work with them, with horses," said Linda Lane, Center Director.

By participating in the club, members say they can spread awareness about the importance of tractors.

"Tractor collectors are basically preserving history. I like to say that we like to educate as well as be educated by the public," said Tracy Holdren, Vice President of the Old Steam and Gas Club.

The tractors drove from Adamsville, to the farm for lunch, and back to Adamsville. All proceeds from the day will be given to the center.
