International Harvester Collectors of Indiana Chapter 7


The FFA tractor projects are run by the FFA Foundation of Indiana and funded in part by us.  The North Putnam FFA (2016) used $5,000 and paid back $3,500 from the sale of the IH  project tractor.  We paid the $1,500 back to the Foundation.  Indian Creek now has the funds for this year.  We expected to give the Foundation money to keep the fund each year at $5,000.  We do not expect the FFA Chapter to lose money.  With no profit for Chapter 7, I think the fund will grow some this year.   We are monitoring expenses and the project this year more closely.  Hopefully, the FFA Foundation will be able to get their projects to where they are self-funding.

Chapter 7 Roll Numbers

Emmett has been wanting to create a master list of the roll numbers assigned to Chapter 7 members over the years.  As each new member joined Chapter 7, they were given a roll number and this respective number was not used again.  If you study this list and check your state number (S-XXX, found on your mailing label), it shows the year that you became a Chapter 7 member.  If you should find any errors, please contact Emmett.

Starting 5-93 with 501 through 584      2006  1064 – 1099
1994 585 –  636                                   2007  1100 – 1120
1995 637 –  693 (666 was not used)      2008   1121 – 1146
1996 694 –  755                                   2009   1147 – 1164
1997 756 –  789                                   2010   1165 – 1184
1998 790 –  825                                   2011   1185 –  1212
1999 826 –  845                                   2012   1213 –  1232       

2000 846 –  902                                   2013   1233 – 1255       

2001 903 –  950                                   2014   1256 – 1263  

2002 951 –  983                                   2015   1264 – 1275     

2003 984 – 1024                                  2016   1276 – 1288  
2004       1025 – 1048                          2017   1289 – 1297  

2005       1049 – 1063    

Perhaps this shows that our individual roll number are just as important as the serial numbers on our IH tractors???  Our thanks to Emmett and his dedication to
our club over the years.  Job well done Emmett!!

The Indian Creek FFA Chapter project members have been invited to our April 8th meeting to give us a report on their Super C project and meet our members.   We may also get a chance to view their IH project after the meeting.  I am waiting on a response from them.

Update



Chapter 7 Members:

Randy wants to discuss and vote on two issues at our next meeting.

1. How does Chapter 7 feel about having a Spring IH Consignment Auction at the Ted Everett Auction site in Monrovia, IN, next year?

2. How do members feel about Chapter 7 directors (only) having a list of our members and their phone numbers?


Please plan to attend our next meeting (April 8th) and take part in these discussions.
