Last July 15, 16 and 17 we had our Reunion. We had 17 steam engines and 5 tractors, not counting the models. We had Bakers, Advance, Gaar-Scott, Minneapolis, Port Huron, Reeves, Huber, Farquhar, Frick and Russell. The tractors were Aultman Taylor and Rumely Oil-pulls. We had 4 Separators, 2 Clover Hullers, one corn Husker and a hand-feed Separator.

We threshed and had a saw-mill running all 3 days. On Friday and Saturday nights we had an open air round and square dance. On Sunday afternoon we had steam engine races, Separator setting contest, threshing, sawing and a coon chase.

We held election in October and the following officers and Directors were elected for 1961. Sylvester B. Ditmer, President; Charley E. Ditmer, Vice-president; Harold Ary, Treas.; Mildred Ary, Secretary. Directors are: Elmer Egbert, Art Heiland, Roscoe Shiverdecker, Homer Holp, Hugh Hartzell, Clark Davidson and Asa Humston. Rev.
