Time for a few lines again from the Pioneer Machinery Club of Merrill, Iowa. We had a good year - got a few new members, lost a few - but that's the way things go. We have a real nice group of fellows that attend our meetings the first Monday of every month. We have good luck getting slides, etc. from members of different things that they do, so we don't have many replays.

We had a nice display at the Ply. Co. Fair again this year. Les Williams and Eric Banks really carry the ball for our club at these doings. They always put on a nice display and never crab and cry about anything - really a nice pair.

I would like to tell you a little about our youngest member, Eric Banks. He is only 13 years old, but already has a pretty good knowledge of gas engines. Eric also helps his brothers on the farm. He lives with his grandparents as he lost both of his parents a few years ago. We all in the club think a lot of our youngest member who seems much older than his years.

We attended some other shows this year at LeMars, Iowa and Nebraska.

I put up a new mail box just to receive my GEM.
