The club got a chance to participate in the Freedom Day Parade in Sandwich IL.

It was a beautiful day for a parade, sunny and cool. It was nice to get out run some engines and drive some tractors. It was a great time, a lot of people came out and were spaced out nicely on our two mile parade route. After the parade was finished Rodger took the tractor guys for a nice afternoon ride.

Club picnic / Show

As you all know our show had to be cancelled this year. So a small group of us got together on June 27th to run some engines. It was beautiful day in the country out on the farm. We had everything covered from, Tractors, Engines, Food, Trains, and even a ice-cream machine. Thanks to all who came out for a fun afternoon, Gene Waite for the nice grill and showing Fred and Joe how cook on a big, wow, Larry Flickinger and family, for making all of us their world famous Green River Ice cream, for all the members that helped out, and for the Barr family for letting us use there farm for are picnic.

The 49th Annual Sandwich Early Day Engine Club Show (June 27th, 2020) has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic and for the safety of our guests and exhibitors. We have been in contact with the DeKalb County Health Dept. and the Sandwich Fair Association on the issues at hand. With the state of Illinois moving to phase 3, and possible stage 4, the number of people will be greater than the recommended limits. On a positive note, next year will be our 50th Annual Show. It will be a two-day show (June 25-26, 2021) with the tractor ride the following day (June 27th). Plan on joining us to help celebrate this significant milestone for our club. We will be featuring the famous Sandwich Engines and related equipment, and for the tractors, Oliver and Massey-Harris and related. Thank you for your support and stay safe. God willing, we will also see you at the Sandwich Fair this year. If you have any pictures or other related memorabilia from our first 48 shows that you would like us to share next year, please contact us at the club’s email (sandwichengineclub@yahoo.com).


Thank you for your support and be safe.
