On September 24 and 25, 1988, for the ninth consecutive year, members of the Vermont Gas & Steam Engine Association participated in a gasoline engine show at Victory, Vermont, a small town located in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom.

This annual engine show is sponsored by the St. Johns-bury Lions Club through the cooperation of Vincent Gravanti, owner of a large field in the Gallup Mills section of Victory.

Co-chairmen of this event are Charles Aldrich and George Stanley, both of whom are Victory residents and the activity is run each year as part of the Holiday In The Hills, an annual program conducted by residents of the towns of Victory and Granby.

At least 40 operating gasoline engines were on display this year, several being of unusual nature.

Foremost was a setup owned and operated by George Stanley. It consisted of an operating shingle mill and edger built by the Lyons Iron Works and powered by two engines, 8 and 10 HP Stovers, connected in a series arrangement.
