PIONEER GAS ENGINE REUNION


| May/June 1963



Report of 'Pioneer Gas Engine Reunion' held here at Wolfsbergers Park and Museum grounds. It was a success despite being rained out on Saturday. Claude Abbert did the announcing, Jim Kane fired the Leffel stationary boiler for the models, Clarence Stillson was in charge of the model exhibit, Jim Kuhn exhibited his 1913 Stanley Steamer, Walt Rumsey operated his shingle mill. The Museums three head block Farquhar sawmill was run by Ted Hamilton and other members, Wally Habecker brought his separator and with the help of Norm Steffen, Harold Ball, Walt Pfaff and other members wheat was threshed. Members operated Rumely Oil Pulls, Hart Parrs, a 22-44 Minneapolis, 25 hp Huber steamer, the Monarch Steam roller and a good collection of one cylinder gas engines. Mrs Ethel Steffens, Mrs. Dorothy Schoff and Mrs. Bruce Hanggi took charge of admissions. Bob Webster's 'Mountain Ramblers' furnished good old time music every evening. Every one seemed to have fun and we are planning on a better show this year.
