Abenaque Gas Engine Show

| February/March 1992

R. F. D. #3, Box 634, Putney, Vermont 05346

July 27 & 28, 1991 once again saw the Abenaque Gas Engine Show in Westminster, Vermont in action. This was the fourth engine meet here and for the second year the weather cooperated.

Ninety-four exhibitors registered, including some with old cars and tractors. All the New England states were represented, save Rhode Island. Engine people also came from New York, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Indiana. There were a good number of Abenaque engines on display. This show is open to all makes of engines; since exhibitors tend to have more than one make, there is no attempt to separate the Abenaques from the others.

The flea market provided an interest for those who were not into engines. Brian Brayden's gas engine powered ice cream freezer made young and old happy with delicious homemade ice cream. Chicken barbecue, cooked by the Westminster Church, kept hunger pains at bay. Members of the Lawrence family provided musical entertainment on Saturday night-for them it was a family reunion.

Plans are now underway for the next show, which will be the last weekend of July 1992. Last year's show was successful enough so that this year the plaques and ribbons will be GIVEN to the exhibitors. The Westminster Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department thanks all the exhibitors who bought their ribbons and plaques and hopes you will all come back next time to reap your reward and bring a friend. An effort is being put forth to come up with something to interest children, also to attract more craft and flea market people.

Hope to see you all in July!
