Joni Weir volunteered to print the newsletter for the first year.
The purpose of the organization is to preserve the ways and means of our early machanical heritage for the future generations.
The organization held five shows during 1987, attended several parades and hosted two general membership potlucks. There seems to be lots of interest in this new organization. The club organized with 60 charter members and ended the year with membership over 80.
Seven special events are scheduled for 1988, and the positive attitude of all members assures a very successful 1988!
The club will have two special shows at Hollins Lake in Santee, California, scheduled for the 21, 22 of May and September 17, 18, 1988. We look forward to having these show dates at Hollins Lake indefinitely. Any visitors to Southern California will certainly enjoy a visit with us at Hollins Lake on either of these dates in 1988.
We hope that the National EDGE & TA will continue to grow.
