Tractor time

About 500 people traipsed through the showroom and maintenance buildings of Witmer’s Equipment during the annual open house Saturday. Started in 1937 by Nelson Witmer’s grandfather, the business on state Route 14 outside Washingtonville is preparing to celebrate its 80th year in business. Two-year-old Donovan Darkadakis of Canfield had a twinkle in his eye and a smile that stretched from ear to ear as he climbed around a Massey-Ferguson tractor during the open house.
