| January/February 1981

4520 23rd Avenue, Rock Island, Illinois 61201

All interested people are invited to 'Recollections of the Rumely Company.' In particular we plan for a good owner/collector turnout. We plan to bring together owners and a few Rumely Company former employees. Owners are welcome to display any Rumely paraphernalia they have such as calendars, paper weights, etc. We plan to compile a catalog of these items so people can have an idea of what sort of things are in existance.

By identifying who owns what farm equipment we will attempt to provide a parts information and technical information exchange.

Martin Barlag, a former Rumely Company employee and avid company historian, will be on hand to provide a historical perspective that only he can.

Registration begins at 10:30 A.M. April 4, 1981 at 910 State Street, LePorte, Indiana 46350, near the original site of the Rumely Company.

Pre-registrations should be submitted by February 28th to Nancy Terzino, Senior Citizens Center, 910 State Street, LaPorte, Indiana 46350 with a check for $5.00 for each person to cover the cost of lunch on April 4th. For pre-registration we will need the name, home address and phone number as well as type of farm equipment for each person attending.
