Spring Picnic – April 22, 2023

What a perfect picnic! John & Debbie Martin and family hosted the picnic at their farm in Attica. Everything was in place, beautiful and they gave us the perfect picnic. There was a nice display of tractors around the barnyard with the most special ones at the door and inside. The swap meet was busy with trucks lined up, guys buying, selling and visiting. The food was great with everyone bringing their favorite dishes. We fed just under 100 people making it a full house. Thanks to Brandon and Danette for providing the tables and chairs; AKA “Sweetums”.

The Club had some new merchandise on the table for everyone to purchase. We now have checkbook covers, portfolios, lighted glass bocks and lighted plexiglas signs. These new items along with our hats, shirts and license plates makes our table look great. The raffle items were on display and we sold a lot of tickets. First prize is an Oliver fire pit. The second prize is an Oliver neon clock donated by Maibach Tractor and the third prize is an Oliver 1850 toy tractor donated by Matt Davis.

Larry conducted the meeting discussing the summer show, Farm Science Review and the planned plow day this fall. There was a special donation from Bob Feathergill and family. A very nice set of Corn Hole boards decorated in Oliver Green complete with decals on them. It was decided to auction the game off. Larry opened the bidding and when it was all said and done they sold for over $400. Congratulations to Lyn Parker for making the winning bid and Happy Father’s Day John! Thanks for the donation and the great auction! Thank You to John & Debbie, Brandon & Danette, and Brock & Alicia for hosting a great picnic.
