Happy 50th,

Yes, that is right. This year we will feature Prairie Gold Minneapolis Moline Tractors and Cushman Engines and Scooters. We will need everyone’s hard work, ideas, input, demonstrations and displays. Going the extra mile to help the guy next to you. Follow the Golden Rule. Yes, this is the same thing I wrote last Newsletter. Everyone, prepare for YOUR show.

As president I look at old reports from DCAPC Inc. just to see. The financial report given in 1972 submitted by Wilbur and Helen Laznendorf, (treasurer and secretary to the treasurer). The larger expenses were $497.50 for hauling. There were no show grounds of our own. Advertising was $253.25. Food – $204.95, Soda – $60.00 (Coca Cola by the way), Ice Cream Bars – $44.16 and Beer – $214.35. Insurance for the event was $300.00 (no show grounds). The ticket takers (Gate) were the Dodge County 4-H JR. leaders – $80.00. Other disbursements were posters, tickets, buttons, ribbons, posts, rope, PA rental, a deputy, Steve Berg (half beer stand profits) – $69.88 ???, and almost $600.00 for a food stand.

Receipts for the club were $1174.00 for gate and advanced tickets, food stand – $862.76, beer – $450.90, and the flea market brought in $5.00. No camping. Total receipts were $4,690.06 and disbursements of $2,702.50. Interest from pass book savings of $1,876.02 was $81.63. Thirteen memberships were added.

Back to present. Lawnmowers are again needed. Decision to be made at May 20th, general meeting. June 3rd will be the Dodge County Dairy Breakfast @ Siegman Farm Cty Hwy N, Rubicon, WI 9 – 1PM and the Fly-in Breakfast @ Dodge County Airport 8 – Noon. Board meeting to follow at airport at noon.

May 28th is Memorial Day, attend a service of your choice and give a prayer of thanks for those who gave so much to give you a choice. July 4th Independence Day, Let us Celebrate.

Thanks,Daryl


A NOTE FROM OUR SECRETARY:

Hello one and all!

Well, is that four letter word that starts with an “S” and ends in a “W” finally done! Boy, I hope so! It has been a long winter and now it’s time to warm up and start with the summer’s activities. Speaking of summer activities, our 50th show is soon approaching and we want this to be the best show we have ever had! We have multiple committees working very hard at making this a great show! This cannot happen without everyone’s help!

I am working hard at making the office a brighter and better place to visit. Stop in and see what we are working on. Les McCullough has been hard at helping me and I think it is taking shape! This year, I want to implement a bag system. When you enter our office at the grounds, you will be handed a bag with everything in it you will need to have, along with plaques, buttons, rules of the grounds, upcoming events and much, much more. The ladies in the office will have so much time on their hands that maybe I can convince them to give out massages. JUST KIDDING! I truly hope to make the office a better flow and a quicker place to visit! (Who wants to stand in lines when we have such a great show to see?)

< align=”LEFT”>I also am planning, not saying it is definite yet, but I would like to have the office open earlier for “handing out bags” than in previous years. Don’t worry Ruth, I will take care of that LOL! So as you can see, there are lots of things new and improved and that is just the office. I hope to see everyone at the show and remember, WE ALL MAKE A DIFFERNCE, NO MATTER HOW MUCH WE CAN HELP!!!!!

See you soon!

Sincerely,Sue Bintzler  DCAPC Secretary

 


 

SHOP NOTES:

The two flair side wagons owned by the club were serviced this winter with complete lube jobs and minor repairs.

The Continental engine is in the reassembly stage. This is the engine for the International number 61 harvester that we hope to have restored by the IH show.
