Recommended Posts

FOR RELEASE: 2005-09-23 Great Lakes Chevy Dealers featured in corn maze Ohio attraction shows Silverado truck carved into corn field, educational display on GM commitment ethanol-fueled vehicles Napoleon, Ohio - Visitors to northwest Ohio this fall can visit the Great Lakes Chevy Dealers' Corn Maze at Leaders Fun*Time Farm in Napoleon. The maze, carved out of a seven-acre corn field, features the designs of the classic Chevrolet bowtie logo, full-size Silverado pickup and "link" to the Web site GreatLakesChevyDealers.com. "This marks the 9th year we've created a corn maze, and it's our first in working with the Great Lakes Chevy Dealers," said Evie Leaders, owner of Fun*Time Farm. "Chevy and the Great Lakes dealers have been great to work with, and we appreciate their help and support with this project." In addition to the maze, GM will have a display showing the company's commitment to the production of E85 Ethanol-powered vehicles. Ethanol is a fuel refined from domestically produced corn. New production plants will open in Lima and Defiance within a year. These two plants will have a combined production output of about 130 million gallons annually. A brand new E85 filling station opened this month in Toledo. Additional stations in Napoleon and Montpelier are scheduled to open next month. Just west of Napoleon, the GM plant in Fort Wayne, Indiana, assembles E85-capable Chevrolet Silverado pickups. Last month, GM provided the Ohio Corn Growers with an E85-capable Chevrolet Tahoe. Visitors to Leaders Fun*Time Farm can see this specially-decorated SUV between Sept. 23 and 25. "General Motors is the nation's largest manufacturer of E85-capable vehicles," said Jim Bunnell, General Manager of GM's North Central Region. "The corn maze at Fun*Time Farm is a perfect platform to show our commitment to this alternative fuel and the farmers who help make it possible." Other "farmtastic" attractions that will take place on weekends between Sept. 23 and Oct. 30 include: The Second Annual Pumpkin Festival from 2 to 5 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 8. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Relay for Life. Make a Difference Day on Saturday, Oct. 22. Visitors can bring a coat, hat, gloves or canned food item this day to receive a discount on admission. Costume contests at 4 and 8 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 29. Prizes will be awarded to adults and children. The "ScreamAcres" haunted cornfield will return for its fourth season at Leaders Fun*Time Farm. Admission to Fun*Time Farm is $7.50 for adults, $5 for children age 6-11 and free for children under 4. Free tickets are available at local Great Lakes Chevy Dealers for customers who test drive any new Chevy car or truck. While at the dealership, visitors can register for a chance to win a new 2005 Chevy Silverado pickup that will be on display at the farm.
