International Harvester Collectors Elect Officers

| June/July 1991

Berkshire Implement Co., Royal Centre, Indiana 46978

On December 2, 1990 the first official Directors meeting of 'International Harvester Collectors' was held. A noon meal at Colonial Inn Restaurant in Winamac, Indiana, followed by a four hour meeting at Berkshire Implement at Royal Centre, Indiana, was attended by all nine directors, advisors, and guests, totalling about 30 people.

Representatives from the Rock River Thresheree, and the IH Scout and Light Truck Association, as well as advisors from Michigan and Illinois who are interested in forming local chapters, were present.

Business accomplished was the approval of the official by-laws, election of officers, and an agreement with Rock River Thresheree, at Edgerton, Wisconsin, to host our national convention (Red Power Round-up) on Labor Day Weekend 1991. Some basic requirements for local chapters, a display for the 1991 Farm Progress Show, and routine business matters were discussed.

Officers for 1991 are: president, Fremont Hoover, Winamac; vice president, Clyde Berkshire, Royal Centre; secretary, Howard Lord, Burnettsville; treasurer, Randy Sottong, Kempton.

International Harvester Collectors is an association of IH enthusiasts, welcoming all areas of interest, which was formed July 21, 1990 at an organizational meeting held at the Northern Indiana Power from the Past show at Winamac, In. We now have over 700 members from thirty states and several foreign countries.
