The Antique Engine, Tractor & Toy Club

| November/December 1986

Box 385, RD #1, Pine St. Slatington, PA I8080

Our first show on June 7-8, 1986 at the Kempton, Pennsylvania Community Center was a success, with 85 engines, 35 tractors and 23 flea market spaces rented. All of this despite hot, humid, thunderstorm weather (yes, it did rain both days) and being a first show by a new club. Over 100 photos were taken and mounted as slides, and it is our aim to show them at a first anniversary banquet on October 18.

Our club membership has grown far beyond our first year expectations, as we now have over 200 members. (First notice of formation of our club appeared in April 1986 GEM.) The entire club says 'thanks' to the exhibitors, vendors, general public, donors of baked goods and other materials and services, for without all of these the show would not have been a success.

The tentative dates for next year's show are June 6 and 7.
