On June 19, 20, 21 the Antique Farm Engine and Tractor Association members, along with the Rainier Two Cylinder John Deere Club members, helped make the Meeker Days Weekend Festival a big success and draw in large crowds. This was our second year to participate in the event.

The Meeker Day event organizers found a place for us to camp and park our trucks close to the area where we were showing our displays. It was about a half block away in the parking lot of a strawberry cannery, the aroma of the strawberries was very enticing. Friday thru Sunday the cannery offered free samples of the strawberries, and they also sold the berries at the cannery.

The first to arrive Friday was Paul Pearman with his Sattley engine. Next David Wester came roaring down the street with his 1950 Kenworth hauling Sid Shoemaker's 1930 model #60 Caterpillar.

Wayne and Mary Ann Nettekoven were next to arrive with a trailer load. They had a 1913 1? HP Domestic side shaft, 1929 Maytag Washing machine, Model 27 Maytag Twin. Hugh Davis set up next to us with a 9 HP and 1? HP. Economy and 1? Fairbanks Morse. A couple of hours later the road was filled with Ralph Gulan's 1948 John Deere Model AN tractor, 1948 ACG, and 1946 Gibson.

Don Fifer with his helpers Tom & John Fifer and Hecter Villanueva maneuvered his 5th wheel trailer in line loaded with engines mounted on it. He had F.M.Z, Fuller Johnson, Economy and Fairmonts along with a large can crusher he made.
