NEW YORK MEET DRAWS CAPACITY CROWD

By Staff

The New York Steam Engine Association wound up its 2nd
successful year with an attendance of over 30,000 at their
‘Pageant of Steam’. The addition to having over 20 large
traction engines in operation, there were dozens of portable and
stationary engines, an unusually large collection of gas engines
plus a tent full of models. The four days saw endless
demonstrations of threshing, plowing by steam, sawmill operation
and other events.

The election of 1963 officers was held at the Annual Fall
Meeting with the following results: Wallace Wood, President

Lester Norris, Vice-President

Bruce Kelley, Secretary

Ogden Miller, Treasurer

Abram Johnson, Glenn Orbaker, Everett Blazey, Melvin Fellows,
Robert Marshall, R. Dayton Nichols, Homer Prudom Jr., Robert
Stickler and George VanNattaall Board Members.

Plans are already underway for the 1963 ‘Pageant of
Steam’. In addition, the organization plans to hold several
‘Steamups’ during the year. More information may be
obtained by writing to Bruce Kelley, Secretary, Main St., Holcomb,
New York.
