This year we will be entering into a new century and many new
things are happening in southern Wayne County. During our long
winter, two separate organizations have had a marriage: Southern
Wayne Historic Association and Pocono Mountain Tractor and Antique
Machinery Association have become one. All of us who have been
collecting machinery cannot help but think about the history of
these great machines. For the last few years, the Historic
Association has taken part in our shows. Our mutual understanding
led us to see that our goals were not that different and we saw how
much help we could be to one another. Now, we will have a
well-organized archive of not only historic places and people, but
also records of our machinery club members and their historic past,
as well as local artifacts, keeping alive the actual way it was
here in our area. We also look to the future.

Friday night at our show is the open horse show which goes to
promote our local 4-H. The show will also have two days of garden
tractor pulling and Saturday night is set aside for antique farm
tractor pulls. We have all the great things that make a show fun,
from old tractors and engines to thrashing, draft horses,
horse-drawn equipment, and flea markets.

Also, for those who like history, we have invited all the
historic organizations from Wayne County to display in our main
exhibit hall. Don’t forget our chicken barbecue.

So, if you would like a walk into the past with a pinch of the
future, come to the Southern Wayne Farm and Horse Show to be held
July 23-25, 1999 at the Newfoundland, Pennsylvania,
fairgrounds.
