The next meeting of the Illiana Antique Power Assoc. will be June 21, 2010 at 6:30 P.M. at the clubhouse. Bring a dish to pass for the carry-in dinner. This is “COUNT-DOWN TO SHOW TIME!” Try to attend. See you there!
A LETTER FROM OUR PRESIDENT:
Hello to all,
I can’t believe it is June 1st already. That means our show is only 46 days away! I’m getting ready to send invitations to exhibitors once again so, if you know of anyone that has tractors, engines, etc. just let me know their names and address’s and I will extend an invitation to them to be a part of our show. Thanks to all who came and mowed the grounds and worked on the * porch addition. We can all be proud of our show grounds. Remember to bring your ads for the program book to the June meeting. See you there! Congrats to all families with recent college and high school graduations.
*Tom (with help from Bob Folk) has worked very hard on the two new buildings at the show grounds. There is a new “milk house” that was completed and opened for display during History Day. The porch addition he refers to is on the new “Ladies Quilt House”. Both buildings are extremely lovely and a great addition to the show grounds!
THANKS TOM AND BOB!
GATE & PARKING:
Tom Nickle and Art Petty need volunteers to help park cars in the parking lot and also to collect gate fees as the cars come in to the grounds. There will be a sign-up sheet in the clubhouse. Shifts will be 2-hr. shifts (unless there is a shortage of volunteers that will extend the shifts to 4-hr. shifts) on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. There will be a tent for taking money and handing out programs. We need a lot of helpers here……..men and women. Please sign up or call Tom at 765-798-5420 or Art at 765-294-2301 to let them know when you’d like to work.
It’s time to sign-up for a camping space during the show! John Carrell will be at the June meeting with a sign-up sheet. Or, you can contact John at 765-793-3282 during the day.
Camping fee is $25.00. Spaces are limited.
PINE CREEK & WESTERN R.R. NEWS:
Hi everybody! Not a whole lot to report this month, but Tim Sering tells me he’s making headway on the new water tower, and, hopefully it’ll be ready for the big show. Plans are still in place to complete the renovation of the yards by the same time and work days are being planned towards that end. That’s all for this month, but as always, “Keep a close eye on the water”.
