2019 Spring Picnic – April 2019

The Buckeye Oliver Collectors spring picnic 2019 was hosted by Larry and Suzy Reilly of Norwalk and will be remembered for the weather.  What a beautiful day we had, temps in the seventies with much sunshine; and what a nice well-kept farm our hosts live and work on.  The hard work of the Reilly’s with son Scott and his wife Stacey really show with the appearance of the farm.  But this day also had its…

2018 Greenville Show

MAID RITE, no I’m not talking about how Oliver Farm equipment was put together. But rather I’m referring to a small extremely busy sandwich shop in downtown Greenville.

Thanks to Dave for hosting but more important for having a large heated building where everyone, I think, were comfortable. Following a beautiful Grace by Lyn Parker at noon we ate.
