IEOA Truck Light Convoy & Food Drive

Great article in the Times Colonist this past weekend featuring one of our employees, Richard Littlejohns and his daughter, who takes great pride and joy in decorating the Farmer Construction truck each year for the Annual IEOA Truck Light Convoy and Food Drive held on Saturday December 4th. Thank you Richard for all your effort in making Farmer shine bright for such a great cause!

“Richard Littlejohns of Farmer Construction, who had his 16-year-old daughter, Breanna, along as co-pilot, said he has been part of the convoy for 21 years and missed the event last year.

Seeing the children watching the trucks and enjoying themselves is what he likes, Littlejohns said. “It’s all about that — getting people in the right spirit.”

He said he spent about a day-and-a-half decorating his truck, which is made easier by reusing certain decorations. A generator keeps the whole display bright.

Breanna said she has ridden with her dad a few times before. “It’s pretty fun,” she said.”
