UAW Local No. 662, 2025 Hillcrest Drive, Anderson, IN 46012

Forty-seven newly painted antique tractors were parked at
attention along the 109 By-Pass in front of the Union Hall ready to
take on the challenges of the cranking contest, slow race and
obstacle course at the U.A.W. Gas Engine and Tractor Jubilee on
June 6th and 7th. The Trundaar tractor, made in Anderson and
exhibited by Joe McClain, is the only one of its kind known in
existence.

Two hundred and forty five old gas engines (made in the early
1900’s) were shined up, and shared the beautiful weekend with
their proud owners. Among the tasks these engines were used for
during their heyday were running washing machines, pumping water,
sawing wood, and aiding in the operation of blacksmith shops,
elevators and factories.

Whiteriver Folk and Bluegrass Club fiddled, strum and sang to
everyone’s enjoyment during Saturday afternoon and into the wee
hours.

Many said the craft show was the best ever held at the UAW Hall.
The Make-It and Take-It dealers added an extra dimension to the
show.

Over a hundred engine exhibitors from a five-state area visited
during the old-time country breakfast on Sunday morning that
provided a time to catch up on the happenings of the past year.

We hope to see you all and many, many more next year on June 4th
and 5th, where old friends and new friends meet!
