2018 Engine, Tractor and Toy Show

As the weather finely cleared on Friday morning, after 6″ of rain over night we had a new lake at the fair grounds. The pumps were on over load and the lake was gone by 2 pm.for setup. The Friday evening tractor ride through town was enjoyable. It was the first time I participated. Saturday the sun was shining and what beautiful day for an engine and tractor show. Sunday was a 20+ mile tractor ride.  We can’t thank everyone enough for joining us at this years show. With all your support, this years show was a success. More photos to come…

Some of our members made the trip over to the 29th Annual “N.A.M.E.S.” Model Engineering Exposition which will be held April 21-22, 2018 at the Yack Arena, in Wyandotte, Michigan. It was a lot of fun.
