School Sponsors Gas Engine Show

| May/June 1994

Mt. Everett Regional School Everett, Massachusetts 01257

Mt. Everett School in Sheffield, Massachusetts, has a reputation for being an innovative school. It is recognized regionally with its scheduling reforms and its progressive curriculum in the form of 'The Odyssey Program' in the high school. As an ongoing part of the middle school interdisciplinary approach to learning, the staff plans to hold an old time gas engine and history show at the school on Friday, June 3 and Saturday, June 4. The school has received the support of the Hudson Valley Oldtime Power Association, who will sponsor the event with Mt. Everett School.

Prior to the show the students will be involved in all their classes on various topics related to the gas engine revolution of the early 1900s. Students will be writing essays, working on labs, and some students will be involved in actually rebuilding gas engines. Members of the H.V.O.T.P.A. have already volunteered to conduct classroom demonstrations on the unique features of the gas ' engines and the purpose of their hobby. The Association has even donated a gas engine to be restored by the students. Community members, from tractor repairmen to automotive restoration shops, and the Sheffield Historical Society have volunteered to assist in making this the best learning experience possible.

They encourage and invite oldtime gas engine collectors to participate in this show. Your attendance and enthusiasm will help make this a reality. The show will be a great opportunity to help the hobby grow and for young people to interact with adults.

The show will be held at Mt. Everett School, in Sheffield (located in the southwestern corner of Massachusetts, bordering Connecticut and New York), on Friday, June 3 and Saturday, June 4. Flyers are available and anyone with questions can call Paul Menin at 413-229-8652.

The school staff and students look forward to meeting many of you at the show. See you there!
