Lon and Vicki Reukauf of Cherry Creek Ranch in Terry were the lucky winners of the 2008 Dodge truck given away at the Montana Stockgrowers Association’s 124th Annual Convention and Trade Show on Saturday, Dec. 13. The Reukauf’s drove away from convention with full ownership of the Dodge Cummins Diesel truck, valued at $40,000, thanks to Lithia Dodge of Billings, First Interstate Bank of Billings, Northern Ag Network, Western Ranch Supply, Pfizer Animal Health, WALCO Animal Health and MSGA. The drawing was open to all MSGA members and required presence at the Grand Finale Banquet to win. The banquet crowd of 450 people roared its approval when Lon’s name was called.
“I didn’t even know they were giving a truck away until the gal at registration asked if we had entered the drawing,” Vicki said later. “So I wrote Lon’s name down. I can’t believe it; the only thing we’ve ever won before was a turkey!”
One member remarked later that the truck couldn’t have gone to better people. MSGA hopes the Reukauf’s enjoy their brand new truck!
