As usual our Antique Mechanical Fair was a big success. Over forty participants brought antique cars and engines to the fair. Winners this year were: Wayne and Judith Newson of Prince Edward Island, Best Gas Engine; Fred and Jennie Embree (1930 Dodge), Best Automobile; Ronald Allan, Best Steam Engine; John Eaton, Best Flat-belt Machinery, and; Wendall Lemon received the Lockwood Award for Fine Workmanship for his model steam engine. Hero of the day was new board member Doris Harkness, who did an excellent job of coordinating lunch and dinner for participants. She certainly whipped us all into shape! Thanks also to Bill Fairbanks, Carol Corney, Vicki Randall, Gladys Mazerall, Kim Gorveatt, Stephen Boss, Adri Boodoosingh and George Dempsey for their assistance leading up to and on the day of the fair. Attendance was 250.
