July 28 Meeting Highlights

Happy Dollars

There were lots of Happy Dollars, including Steve Jedlund’s appreciation of Denny Fox, who gave him a model of an Allis Chalmers tractor from among his late mother’s belongings.  Steve extolled the virtues of Allis Chalmers tractors, adding that he had just been in Hutchinson for the “Gathering of the Orange,” a meet-up of Allis Chalmers aficionados. 

 

Club Assembly, led by President Chip Groth

Chip engaged club members in a general discussion of what should be continued, started, and stopped during the coming year, particularly with regard to community and international service priorities.  Chip will follow up with a member survey and additional discussion at an upcoming Board meeting.
