All you have to do is come to the lower teacher parking lot at ACHS, fill out a form that asks your opinion of Ford, pick out any brand new vehicle that is there (brought up from Don Franklin Ford), drive it through our route then come back and sign the back of the form and leave! We will receive $20 per participant from the Ford Company. There is no pressure to buy. It really is as easy and fun as it sounds!
You must be 18 years or older, have a valid driver’s license and only one participant per household.
Thank you so much!!!
