The Miami Valley Steam Threshers Association, Inc.

| March/April 1960

Secretary, 208 E. Church St., Urbana, Ohio

Having just completed our business for the past year the members of the Miami Valley Steam Threshers Association held an election at the Edinger Bros. Saw Mill, Urbana, Ohio, to select officers and board members for 1960. Re-elected to serve during the coming year were:

George Edinger, Orbana, Ohio...Pres. Chester King, Springfield, Ohio V-Pres. L. H. Little, Urbana, Ohio........Sec'y Byron Beatty, Urbana, Ohio....Treas.

Appointed as chaplain was Dane King, Springfield, Ohio, and as master of ceremony Paul McQueen, Columbus, Ohio. The dates for next year's reunion will be July 29, 30 and 31st, 1960 and the show will be at the same place, Goshen Memorial Park, Mechanicsburg, Ohio.

Among the newcomers this year were Earl Webb, Sunbury, with a 21-75 Baker; Lawrence Apgar, Bellefontaine, with a 50 HP Case; John Lindesmith, Galion, with a 21-75 Baker; and the Drummond Bros., Orient, with a 23-90 Baker Special. Our President feels that we should extend a warm welcome to all who wish to participate.

Last summer the Edinger Brothers bought a 1915 Buffalo-Springfield road roller. With a good cleaning, a little restoring, and a coat of paint, it was quite an attraction. There are very few rollers in this area and so far as we know none have been exhibited recently in Ohio. By the way, they had to buy two rollers in order to get one, so someone might persuade them to part with the extra.
