The Great Northern Oliver Collectors club was founded under a large oak tree during the summer of 1997 as a local chapter of the National Hart-Parr Oliver Collectors Association. We are one of two Minnesota chapters, and primarily serve the southern region of the state. In 1998 our club began doing an Oliver calendar and continues to do so with the ongoing support and enthusiasm of our members.
If you would like to host a event in your area please contact us by sending a email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, If you have an event where you would like to feature Oliver, Hart-Parr and White Tractors please send a email letting us know.

Letter from Cody Hawkins:
Dear Dean and Muriel Smith,
I would like to express my gratitude and thanks for your generous funding of the Great Northern Oliver Collectors Scholarship. I'm incredibly honored to be the recipient of this award.
A little bit about myself, I'm currently a junior majoring in agricultural engineering. In my short time here at UWRF for the past year, as I'm a transfer student, I have started the Falcon Robotics Team with one of my professors, Dr Digman, and have been on the track and field team as a pole vaulter.
With that said, the scholarship money will be used to help fund our robotics team trip to Detroit this summer to compete at the ASABE International meeting with many other schools. We've been working hard on it all semester long and can’t wait to go show off what we've accomplished at the competition.
Again, Thank you very much for your generosity and helping support out newly founded team with it. Your donation will help keep this team going for years to come!
