Our 6th Annual Reunion was a huge success. Our crowds are getting larger every year. Several people made the remark we would have to have a few more acres of ground for another year. The weather was beautiful which was in our favor. It was cool in the mornings and evenings but real warm in the afternoons.

We had 13 steam traction engines, 1 portable and several small scale models. Our engines are as follows: 9HP Case owned by C. W.

Va.; Russell owned by William Humphreville, Mt.

Our small engines were a Frick built and owned by Russell Gay, Waynesburg, Pa.; 3' Model Case engine built and owned by Thomas Hatcher and sons, New Concord, Ohio; a Free Lance Model traction engine built and owned by Gary J.
