International Harvester Collectors of Indiana Chapter 7
The gifts of the two International 100 pedal tractors and wagons to our State children’s hospitals were well received. Both Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital and Riley Hospital for Children have sent the club ‘Big Thank You’ notes and letting us know they both are in use in their therapy departments. Thanks to Ohio Chapter 6 and those in Chapter 7 who helped organize this wonderful donation.
Our winter meeting was held for the last time at Jonathan Byrd’s in Greenwood as they are closing their restaurant business. We have had two places suggested that we might go next year Gray Brothers or Poe’s cafeterias both located in Mooresville. If you know of a centrally located place that might host our winter meeting please let one of directors or officers know. We will need to make a decision by early summer.
We received thank you cards from the Hamilton Southeastern FFA and the Indiana FFA Foundation for our kind donation. Thanks to Hamilton Southeastern FFA for all of their help during the 2013 National IHC Auction.
A reminder that our second quarter meeting will be held at the Johnson County Antique Machinery show located near Johnson County Horse Park in Edinburgh, From I 65 and Indiana 31 take Indiana 252 west of Edinburgh approximately 3 miles. Watch for signs on Indiana 252. The ground is part of the old Camp Atterbury. Our meeting date is June 21st at 1 PM.
Our State show will be hosted by the Mid America Thrashing and Antiques Machinery show August 7, 8, 9, & 10 in Tipton, Indiana. Our meeting will be held on Saturday August 9th, time TBA.
As of yet, we have not found a host for our 2014 plow day. We need someone who has at approximately 40 acres to plow. If you would be interested or know someone who might host please let us know.
We had a reading of our proposed bylaw changes during our winter meeting with a vote to adopt coming to our next meeting. A copy of the bylaws is included in our newsletter. If you have comments or question please feel to contact me or Trudy Umberger.
We have added the 2014 Scholarship form to the website. Remember any senior going to further their education beyond high school and is a part of your family line can apply. At this point we do not know the amount and number: however it will be at least $500. So if you have children or grand children, etc going on please have them complete an application. This is grant will not be a part of the college or university financial package.
I hope to see you at our IHC Indiana Chapter 7 shows this summer. We will be at many other venues around the state that feature International Harvester. I hope everyone has a great spring!!!!
