It's no wonder our kind of organizations are springing up all over the country. They bring together the best people in the area. Ten of those folks met together a year ago and founded the Tazewell County OldeThreshers Assn. in Tazewell County, Ill. A year later we have 60 of the most dedicated members you'll ever see. We had a full spring and summer, holding meetings around chili cookouts and strawberry shortcake' fests, with plenty of antique engines and tractors to go around. We held the main show in October and the turnout was great! We had a good showing of tractors and engines, plus cornshellers and graders, working hammer mill, plows, collections, etc. We're looking for ward to doubling our show next year, and invite all our friends out in engine land to join us.

A nicely restored 1922 Model 'F' Cletrac - displayed by James Owen by of Wilminton, Del. Shown at the Tuckahoe Annual Show in Easton, MD., this year will be their 10th Annual Show.
