The new year has brought exciting changes to the Michigan Flywheelers Museum of South Haven.

Long time president Fred Krizan of Bangor decided not to seek reelection after many years of involvement with the organization. Vice president Patrick Ingalls of Bangor was elected to replace Krizan. Krizan said that he felt it was a good time to leave the museum, as he felt it was running very well with the present Board. He also wanted more time to spend with his family and more time working on his hobby of collecting. Krizan had been instrumental in the development of the museum's antique engine and tractor show since its beginning.

Ingalls, a collector of Michigan windmills, has also been very involved in museum activities, and had been vice president for the last four years. Director Larry Weniger of Grand Junction is the new vice president.

This year's Swap Meet/Flea Market dates are June 19-21. Members voted recently to change the admission charge to the event to a $3.00 parking fee and a vendor fee of $25.00.

Director Ed Hills of South Haven was elected financial secretary in November; Rich Smith of Gobies, and Elden Janke of Benton Harbor, were reelected Directors.
