No dealer shows its support for active and retired military personnel more than A.D. Farrow Co. Among the things done last year: a “Salute to Heroes” calendar benefiting a local Marine Corps Reserves unit that has lost more members in Iraq than any other; an Armed Forces Appreciation Day (an annual event with free food, music and military displays); and sponsorships of the Combat Veteran’s Charity Ride and the annual Ohio Fallen Heroes Memorial Poker Run. The store also organized the motorcycles for the Delaware, Ohio, Veteran’s Parade Ride, in which 300 riders participated.
