Just for Fun

Valley Historical Engine Association was started by four people in 1979. Of those, one quit, one moved, and one is deceased, but Richard Ayre and his wife Marian continue to have a just-for-fun show on Father's Day.

Marian and few helpful ladies serve burgers, hot dogs, beans, coffee, sodas, etc., so no need to bring a picnic basket. We start at 7:30 a.m. and run until 5:00 p.m. Sometimes 25 exhibitors come to show about 40 engines. Last year we had three tractors (green), a few pedal tractors, a whole trailer of hand water pumps, a few antique autos, and a trailer of generators. We just have fun!
