Winter 2019


I pause to write this, after my family has departed from our Thanksgiving feast. This time of year is notoriously busy, but I hope that everyone was able to take a few moments to be thankful before we become consumed with the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season.

We had our State Show at the Brown County Antique Machinery Show in Nashville, IN. We would like to extend our thanks to our gracious hosts. We held our annual election during the meeting on Saturday. Marty Thieme, Ben Chestnut, and Brian Pierce’s terms were up. Marty chose to retire from the board and we thank him for his many years of service to Chapter 7. Ben Chestnut and Brian Pierce agreed to run again and Charlie Craft was nominated from the floor. We welcome Charlie to the Board. All Officers maintained their positions. We also voted to host the National Auction in 2021. We will begin planning at the January meeting. We will also be voting on future show hosts in January as well as a host for our 2020 plow day, so please plan to attend.

We would like to thank David Sottong and his family for hosting our plow day. We had to delay in order to make sure the beans were harvested, but we ended up with perfect weather and a great day for plowing. Pat Schlegel was there and we have lots of pictures on our Facebook page for everyone to see.

We have several members who have had surgery and who are sick. I will not attempt to list them all here, because I am afraid I will forget someone. Please keep them all in your thoughts and prayers.

Our first quarter meeting will be on Sunday, January 26 at the MCL Cafeteria in Greenwood. This is the same location as last year. The address is 3630 S East St, Indianapolis, IN 46227.

We hope to see everyone there.
