October Meeting

is election of Officers and Board members. Please, if you would like to run for an office, tell a present officer/board member. The reason for By-laws change #20 is because we don’t have people coming forward. Our club has survived the pandemic and financial disaster. We have a lot of talented members. If more do a little, no one will have to do a lot.

Thank You

“Thank-you” to all who helped at the show. We come to our show to work and go to others to have fun (Tim Rossman). Attendance was down a little from the last show, but the club still made a profit.

“Thank-you” to all who furnished food and helped at the fair. Although the weather wasn’t ideal, good conversation and fellowship was enjoyed. A lot of people looked over the displayed tractors and many children had their picture taken on either a Farmall Tractor or crawler. The food was excellent and plentiful.

“Thank you” to Tim and Theresa Allen who paid for the tent at the fair.
