Shown are a few of the 108 gas engines that were displayed and many in operating condition at the 1967 Midwest Old Settlers and Threshers Reunion. This fall they will be seen shelling corn, running a grist mill, sawing wood and lumber, pumping water and running an old-time washing machine. Dates of the show are August 29th through September 2nd.

The National Convention of the Early Day Gas Engine and Tractor Association will be held in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa on Saturday evening, August 31st, in conjunction with the nineteenth annual Reunion of the Midwest Old settlers and Threshers.

At the 1967 Renunion, the Iowa Chapter of the Early Day Gas Engine and Tractor Association supervised the gas engine show which had 108 engines exhibited, with very few duplications. A high percentage of the engines were in running order, and many were brought for the exhibit from a wide area of the midwest.



The Iowa Chapter will again supervise the 1968 show. This year the group expects to have some activity using the engines, such as shelling corn, running a grist mill, sawing lumber, pumping water and running an old-time washing machine.

The Midwest Old Settlers and Threshers Reunion in Mt. Pleasant is one of the largest shows of its kind in the United States. It runs for five days each year, beginning the Thursday before Labor Day. It annually hosts more than 200,000 visitors. Last year visitors registered from 45 states and 17 foreign countries.
