At its 1965 meeting, the Pioneer Gas Engine Association engine club re-elected its officers and set a date for its summer 1966 show.
The 1965 Annual Meeting of our engine club, the Pioneer Gas Engine Association, was held Nov. 7, 1965 at The Mendon Pioneer Museum, Honeoye Falls, N.Y. The meeting was well attended. The following officers were voted on and re-elected to office: President—Donald A. Luteyn, Palmyra; Vice President—Harry Schoff, Honeoye Falls; Secretary—Dorothy Smith, Ontario; Treasurer—Martha Abbert, Rochester. Directors elected for a three year term are Clarence Stilson, Rochester; Arthur Norton, Syracuse; and Milton Skinner, Geneva.
The dates of July 29, 30, and 31 were set for the 1966 Reunion. It takes much work and planning ahead to get ready for the shows.
There will be a Christmas party at the Dec. 5th meeting. There will be Western music for dancing. The members are asked to bring a toy which will be donated to a children's hospital. We will also have organ music and Christmas Carols.
There will be no meeting in January. The February meeting will be on the 6th. Movies, slides, and pictures will be shown.
The 1966 membership dues are now due ($2.00). Anyone interested in the restoration and preservation of gas engines, tractors, and allied equipment is invited to join. Our meetings are the first Sunday of the month, except Jan. You will also receive the PIONEER ENGINE BUGLE, a bi-monthly newsletter about the members and their activities.
