Indiana Chapter 7
I hope everyone had an enjoyable summer and had a chance to attend a few good tractor shows. Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Dawn Dieckmann, and at the State Show, I was elected President of Chapter 7. I have been on the board for the past 9 years. The first 5, I served as your Secretary, and the last 4, I have been Treasurer. I am looking forward to this new role and continuing to work with all of you.
I would like to thank Randy Barrett and Emmett Webb for their years of service. They both retired as Directors this year, however Emmett will continue on as our membership secretary. They will both continue to support Chapter 7 as Advisors to the board.
I would also like to thank Jim Yoars for taking on the role of Treasurer, and welcome our two new directors, Dwayne Hansford and Brad Craft.
Our state show was hosted by the Franklin County Antique Machinery Show in
Brookville, IN. If you missed it, you missed a great show. They had over 300 IH tractors, too many garden tractors to count, 4 power units, at least 3 hay presses, and an assortment of trucks. In total, they had over 1100 exhibits.
They also have a nice flea market, plenty of food to try, a petting zoo, and plenty of things to keep you busy. They were gracious hosts, and we look forward to visiting them again in the future.
Sadly, we had to cancel our plow day this year. The weather just did not want to cooperate with us. If you are interested in hosting this event next year, please let us know. Since we were unable to have a plow day, we have re-scheduled the fourth quarter meeting to November 18 at the Bluebird Restaurant in Morristown, IN. We can begin arriving at 11:30, and the meeting will be after lunch, at approximately 1:30. We need to determine the sites for the first and second quarter meetings of 2019. The third quarter meeting will be at our State Show, hosted by Brown County Antique Machinery Association,
September 13 & 14. We also need a site for the 2019 plow day and fourth quarter meeting.
I hope to see you there!
