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.
