Approximately 4,000 people visited Local 662’s first Antique
Tractor and Gas Engine Show in Anderson, Indiana, on June 1 and 2.
We were pleased with both the turnout of exhibitors and
spectators.

This year’s show broke down to 31 tractors, 3 model
tractors, 133 gas engines and 1 pumper. The show also had 25 craft
and 15 flea market exhibits, an antique watch display and several
food booths.

We had a good time putting on our show, and are already looking
forward to next year’s. We hope that our enthusiasm passes on
to our visitors and exhibitors, making them feel proud to also be a
part of our show.

Basically, we had nice weather this year contributing to making
the antique tractor show races and cranking contest in the
afternoon and blue grass music in the evening very enjoyable.

Next year, we will be having 4 bands, 2 of country and 2 of blue
grass. We will also have a large variety of contests, with cash
prizes given to the winners.

Please come out and join us next year, June 7 and 8. Our
admission is free and our motto is courtesy.
