411 9th Ave. S.W., Le Mars, Iowa 51031

Just a few details of our Pioneer Machinery Club. We are now two years old and growing a little all the time. We meet in the old City Hall of Merrill, Iowa, which is donated to us through the good Mayor Melvin Kolker of Merrill.

Throughout our club is a lot of machinery owned by the members. I'm sure there are over 500 units of both gas and steam engines, old tractors, wagons and farm machinery of the past.

Dr. Newman of Orange City, Iowa, has one of the most complete numbers of horse drawn machinery, all restored and painted like new. He also has a very nice herd of pure bred draft horses that can't be matched for many miles around.

We are proud of our club and last year when the town of Le Mars had their Centennial, we had nine units in the parade which was more than any other club or business displayed. We also display at the Plymouth County Fair and at Merrill Town and Country Days.

A photo of our club button. We are now two years old and have some thirty members from four states. (Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota, Minnesota). We charge $2.00 for the initial fees and so far have not had to charge any more.
