Breakfast, Breakfast, Breakfast! Now being served in the Dining Hall! The sound of Dick Dutton's voice reverberated around the U.P. State Fairgrounds as exhibitors and vendors made their way toward the inviting aroma of the free breakfast being prepared by officers of the U. P. Steam and Gas Engine Association.

With plates piled high with pan cakes, sausage, scrambled eggs, toast and coffee ready to be served, breakfast has become a time to make new friends and renew old acquaintances at the Association's annual show.

With good feelings evident among all, exhibitors made their way to their engines and tractors to meet the many guests who came by to look at, examine, or reminisce about the 'Good Ol' Days' when they, their parents, or their grandparents used equipment like that.

If you were a vendor at the Flea Market, or the Knife and Gun Show, you had hundreds of people milling around the fairgrounds looking for bargains and sometimes for much needed items. If you needed something, you had your chance to choose among the thousands of items for sale.

Featured at our Silver Anniversary Show were exhibits and photos from the past 25 years. A special memorial service was held during the church service Sunday morning honoring those members who are no longer with us.
