AMANDA STILL and her dog, Hank, both of Gladwin, were part of the approximately 50-truck Andy Jahn convoy that left Perry Township on Sunday, March 26. The trucks came from all over the state to gather at TransFleet on Sunday morning, with the convoy departing with hay, fencing materials and equipment, food, and milk replacer for the fire-ravaged countryside in Kansas, Texas, Oklahoma, and Colorado.

The trip took on a special meaning for Still, having worked with many of the farmers and ranchers affected by the wildfires. “This means a lot to me,” Still said prior to takeoff. “I haul livestock, and I’ve hauled a lot of cattle to the farmers we’re going to help. We know these grounds and I am glad this matters so much to so many people. This is really a beautiful sight; so many people coming together to help others across the country.” (Independent Photo/Graham Sturgeon)
