Upcoming Christmas Parades: Elkton – Friday, Dec. 6th, 6 p.m.; Guthrie, 10 a.m., Sat. Dec. 7th; Trenton, 3 p.m., Sat, Dec. 7; Dec 14th – 7 p.m. - Greenville; Dec 15th- Central City; and Dec. 14-1:00 p.m.-Quality Parade. NOTE: Since this meeting the Elkton, Guthrie, and Trenton parades have been rescheduled, etc. due to winter weather. Elkton will be held Sat, Dec. 14th at 6 p.m.
Joe Miller suggested if we support Todd Co. with attendance in Elkton we should also support the Trenton and Guthrie events in support of the South Todd Communities. Joe also stated he would prepare a float if Darrell would provide the wagon originally planned as a “hay ride”. He will prepare an “Olde-Time Christmas” theme. We’ll still need riders for the float and candy will be provided by the club and thrown to spectators.
A motion was made by Danny Higgins and seconded by Jerry Rust to purchase banners stating the club name and logo for use on the wagon (16’ x 2) during the parade and also for other events. The banners will be made generic to be suitable for all events. Joe contacted Michelle Wilson of ETC Printing in Elkton and she will print two banners for a total of $300.00 Motion carried.
It was also noted that we should pay the Clifty Park the annual $200.00 as per the motion made last year for the standard yearly donation to help pay for the electricity and water. The Park also needs the lattice work replaced around the bottom of the stage building. An estimate of $200.00 for the cost of the metal was proposed. The club would provide the labor. Don Laster thought he might be able to secure a donation for the metal. He will report back on the donation.
The fund-raising event was discussed. A motion was made by Don Laster and seconded by David McGhee to purchase a Pedal tractor with trailer along for this year. A $1,000 cash prize will also be added as a package give-a-way. A discussion was then held on what make of tractor should be purchased. A motion was made by Martha Hargrove and seconded by Diane Higgins to delegate the selection to Jerry Rust. Motion carried.
Tickets will be $5.00 each with no added incentive to buy 5 for 20 as in the past due to gaming rules. The cash will create interest in all individuals whether an antique car or truck collector. Motion Carried. The winning ticket will be announced at the annual show event in the fall of 2014. Sheila is to get a giant check printed as well as the tickets. Suggestion was made they be made larger than in the past to allow individuals ample room to complete name and address. Sheila will also check on state rules and follow guidelines for printing tickets.

Clifty's Car Truck and Tractor Club hosted its eighth annual antique tractor and car show Saturday at the Clifty School Park.
Because of the rain and cold temperatures, the tractor show had a smaller turnout than usual; however, the event organizers still considered the day a success. Approximately 25 vehicles, mostly antique tractors, were on display at the park. The tractors were featured later in a parade through town. the parade was led by the Clifty Volunteer Fire Department.
Additionally there were door prizes, activities for the children, sandwiches and snacks to munch on and a raffle to win a 1941 Allis Chalmers "C" tractor.
