WESTERN MINNESOTA STEAM THRESHERS


| May/June 1964



Hawley, Minnesota

Greetings to all members & friends of the Western Minnesota Steam Threshers and to all steam threshers everywhere. Another year and another reunion is now history and memories. For us at Rollag, Minnesota, 1963 was a good year and we had a great reunion. More people came to our four day festivities this year than ever before and there were more exhibits and more action and everybody seemed happy to be there.

For those of us who try to do our part in making these reunions worthwhile, this is most gratifying. Aside from being our greatest reunion at Rollag; 1963 saw the completion of two new buildings under the supervision of Lawrence Fisch, one of our directors.

One of these buildings was used by two Ladies Aids for a dining hall, while the other one, a forty by eighty structure housed the antique cars brought in by the Fargo Moorhead Antique Car Club. For this addition to the show we are thankful to Sid Blakeway, a member of the club and we hope it will be a regular feature at our reunions from now on.

We enjoyed four days of nice weather at our show and the attendance increased each day and broke all records on Sunday, the last day when an estimated thirty thousand people viewed the event.

Robert Moe, who again brought his buses there, to bring the people to and from the out lying parking areas reported they were so busy, they hardly had time to eat.
