FEATURE TRACTOR FOR 20220 Massey Harris and Ferguson


Due to a conflict with Leroy’s schedule of events, clean-up for swap meet will be a week-end earlier, April 23rd, than previously scheduled. A pot luck will be held around noon. Please come and help.


After the August show everything must be removed from the show grounds by Monday afternoon, August 8th as Leroy has an event scheduled.

AUGUST SHOW THRESHING is returning this year

We have the equipment lined up and need manpower for binding and threshing. Please call Thomas Stears, 269-340-2323 and let him know you can help. Also welcomed is anyone willing to learn and help with the saw mill.


Anna & Robert Eubank are the contacts for the bridge crossing: Anna, 269-268-3725, Robert, 269-268-3742. Please leave them a message and a call back number and they will return your call.

PLOW DAYS April 10 at 9:00 AM

Our club is invited to the Kenny Maxwell farm, north on M62 at US 12 Edwardsburg. The farm is on west side-watch for a sign.


The Fair Board has made changes for our club’s display and activities at the fair including relocating us to the old kiddy area which would cause older people to walk quite a way to see our display. The club’s board met and unanimously recommended we not have a display this year. It was voted on by the members at the February meeting and unanimously upheld. Anyone with ideas of what our club could do in its place (not necessarily at the same dates as the fair), please share it at a meeting. One idea shared is to have more participation at the parades.

Below are dates in which Leroy has events scheduled on his (show ground) property so we can plan anything we do around these:
April 29th – May 1st
June 3rd – June 5th
July 1st – July 4th
Aug. 11th – 14th
Sept. 2nd – Sept. 5th
October 7th – October 9th
Mud/sand bog dates are every third weekend beginning in May, possibly through October.
