PUBLISHER’S LETTER

By Staff

It’s September, and we all know what that means-quite a few
shows to go to! Our Steam and Gas Show Directory lists over one
hundred events for the month.

September also means ‘back-to-school’ time for the
younger collectors, of which there are quite a few, which bodes
well for the future of the gas engine hobby. Here’s a thought
for the ‘old-timers’-instead of grousing about how easy
these kids have it and how little they know about how things really
were, take the time to pass along what you’ve discovered along
the way in your own life. It could be an enriching experience …
for both young and old.

As I write this, I’m keeping a close eye on the window.
It’s been a very hot and humid mid-July week here in
Pennsylvania, and a thunderstorm is now gathering in the west. This
brings to mind the destructive natural events which have been
taking place lately across the country. How have you made out in
your area during severe weather? And for our friends in California,
have you come through the earthquakes unscathed? Drop us a line and
let us know; our thoughts are with you!

The updated Stemgas book catalog, containing several new
offerings, is due any day from the printer. If you’d like to
receive a copy as quickly as possible, send us a 29 cent stamp (not
an envelope, just the stamp). As soon as the catalogs arrive in our
offices, we’ll stick your stamp on one and send it out right
away!
