This time with Fair Board Director Leslie Davis
with a little help from Dixie
Lester Schurman brought his non-running Fairbanks Morse 6 hp engine to the fair this year. He thought it would be informative to fair goers to rebuild it on site. He only took 4 days to get it into operation instead of the 10 days he allowed. Below are some stills he took of the progress.

The Tractor Cruise-in at Jollies Restaurant is always a blast. This event seems to be getting more popular every year. People who attend are treated to good food, good company and the promoters are always friendly, and ready to help in any way they can. We had half a dozen members from our club FVAEA show up, but many more folks brought many different kinds and styles of tractors as you can see, from around Clark County. The weather was fantastic for driving and showing off. Our thanks to all who put this wonderful event on every year.
