A lot of activities have happened this summer already with much more to come.
We attended the RPRU in Lima, OH with many of you this summer. What a great show to attend. There were more vendors and exhibits than you care to count, and lots and lots of IH Red from Indiana and Chapter 7. Thanks to you who brought IH displays to share with all of the country.
Our Third Quarter meeting was hosted by the Yesteryear Power Club, Clay City, at their one day show. Soup bean lunch was provided for all who came. An interesting event was conduct by one of our members Andrew Tucker. He removed and remounted his 234 International Corn Picker from his tractor in less than 30 minutes then drove away what a great demonstration of IH advancement. Your president won a memorial plaque (best of show) for his 1954 Super H exhibit not bad for a show that featured John Deere. They have invited us back next year when they will be featuring International Harvester.
September 21st was our Plow Day. It was hosted by Richard Walker at his farm 3011 N 850E, Charlottesville. We plowed in wheat stubble of some 40+ acres.
