Thursday behind Alliance Ag in Hettinger was all festivities and fun events as they celebrated Tanks for Thanks last week.

Out of 1,400 locations in 20 states, the Hettinger location was chosen for this honor because of its continued community involvement, and finding ways to give back to the residents in the Hettinger area.
One of the reasons was because of the dollar off day, when they dropped the price of gas to $2.99 a gallon for the day; another is the Alli the Cow project, which has been a huge success not only in Hettinger but also throughout the state.

Alli teaches kids of all ages about safety. Plans for Alli have gone far and beyond what General manager Scott Smith envisioned when he had the original idea. While farm and agricultural safety are still primary, she has expanded to general safety, bike safety in addition topics such as bullying and is spending some suitcase time going wherever she is requested and can fit into her schedule.

“We know our Cenex dealers and retailers are active in their communities and keep their customers at the heart of everything they do,” said Akhtar Hussain, CHS refined fuels brand marketing manager. “As part of the Tanks of Thanks program, we want to recognize the dealers and retailers who are making a difference.”

Hussein presented Alli with a check for $2,500 that Smith said would go into the program to further enhance Alli’s ability to expand the program and reach more people.
This is the second annual Tanks of Thanks program from Cenex ®.
