=== SPRING SHOW REPORT === As Reported By Roger Austin

Neither gloom of rain nor chill of wind nor . . .

We paraphrase the US Post Office motto to affirm that our members, friends and visitors did not give up on June’s Antique Gas & Steam Engine Exhibition. This, in spite of a Saturday of overcast skies with showers and a wind chill on Sunday that surprised everyone. Imagine, the quilts at the Attic Treasures tent sold out to campers in just a few minutes in June! Yet the field of exhibitors was nearly full, the tractor and horse pulls overcame wet ground, every building was filled with visitors seeking comfort and marveling at the exhibits, and food services at the Pavilion Building stayed busy keeping customers warm and full. Bless our Canadian members who came knowing that our higher temperature numbers were due only to our use of the Fahrenheit scale. The cow train and the Century Flier were running again. The chickens left their chicks at home, but we sawed logs and had great tractor parades both days. The kids raced and pulled with the John Deere pedal tractors. We even took a few minutes to dedicate the Antique Tractor Building which was completed last year. The tough weather brought out the best in everyone as they worked to make the Exhibition a success.

SPRING RAFFLE and 50:50 WINNERS == The raffle of the glider from Tractor Supply Company in Massena and the Efco weed trimmer from Evans Farm Repair in Lisbon raised $869. They were won respectively by Sandy Russell and Kelly Lustyik. The 50:50 winners were Allen Chester and Aavik Felt each taking home $211.

=== Fall SHOW REPORT === As Reported By Roger Austin

Hard Work + Perfect Weather = Great Show

Volunteers worked all week preparing the grounds, fixing equipment, prepping the kitchen, cleaning the buildings, and setting up tractors and other large equipment items. On Friday afternoon the exhibitors’ section slowly filled, and we wondered if more would come. But they continued to come, and Saturday morning the Museum grounds were filled. As breakfast got underway, volunteers and visitors began to arrive. The sun came out and lit up the cool morning a perfect day for the Old Fashioned Harvest Days Exhibition. There were more working exhibits than ever, more engines, lots of unusual vehicles, and trucks from as far away as Toronto, Canada.There were more venders than ever. The combine harvested oats in the field. Logs were sawn into lumber for the Blacksmith Shop. Horse and tractor pulls went almost non-stop. New volunteers chipped in including young people fulfilling their 4-H service obligations and a few just happy to help out. Kids galore checked out the chickens, rabbits and sheep and made apple juice. They made good use of the wagon rides, the cow train and Century Flyer. Mini-reunions took place as folks saw old friends. Chicken and ice cream sold out. Those who had not attended an Exhibition for a few years were surprised by the many changes.
