Clarksville Steam and Gas Association 155 W. Cross Street, Clarksville, Michigan 48815
Well, we had our potluck dinner last night, February 20, 1996. This was the first meeting since last fall. We got started planning our 1996 show, committees, etc. We will feature the International tractor and equipment this year (The Big Red). We were all wondering what our tractors and steam engines will look like this spring.
We had a great show in 1995, even though it was hot enough to fry eggs on the fender or canopy of the steam engines.
We sure had a nice rounded-out showing of exhibitors and spectators. (Our intentions are to enlarge our show grounds this year, to make more room for everybody.) We had the big sawmill with two steam engines for power, baling the straw from the thresher with the stationary baler, plus many other things like tractor demonstrations.
We had homemade pie that was yummy good! Friday night we had gospel singing by some of our members. They also ran two steam engines for the spark show. Saturday night was the pig roast, plus we had country and western singing just before the spark show on both Friday and Saturday nights. Sunday morning was church service.
. . . and the little gas engine kept right on pumping water. See you in 1996 in Clarksville, Michigan, August 16-18.
