The first annual meeting of the Northeastern Wisconsin Steam Club, Inc., was held Saturday evening, January 29, 1955 at the Stebbins Hotel in Algoma. As all threshermen have a hearty appetite, we were served a delicious chicken supper. Mr. Holtz, the proprietor of the hotel is a member of our club, so you can imagine everyone was filled to capacity. Along with the very fine food, we were favored with a 'barbershop quartet' consisting of Mickey Deltman, Edward Lohrey, Harold Zeitler, and Melvin Wians. At the beginning they sang 'Sweet Evalina', 'I Had a Dream', and 'Cruising Along With a Model 'T' Ford'. At the close of the meeting they sang 'Good-bye My Coney Island Babe'.

Mr. Iver Moen, an enthusiastic steam fan, traveled from Iron Mountain, Michigan, for this event. Members from Milwaukee, Waukeska, Green Bay, Manitowoc, Oconto, Lake DePere, and various other Wisconsin cities attended.

After exchanging friendly greetings, steaming conversations, the steam fans attention was given to the business meeting.

There is always plenty of business to take care of at this meeting. The coming Rodeo date, election of of

ficers, and any financial matters that arise. A tentative date of the last weekend in July be our Rodeo date. The Board of Directors will decide. The new Board of Directors consists of Harold Jens, Elkhart Lake; Walter Culp, Algoma; Marvin Saenger, Green Leaf R. 2; Leo Duerst, Algoma; Herman Hopfensperger,
