May 3, 2014 – Club annual spring ride and fellowship picnic. The drive/ride will begin at 10 a.m. with the meal around 12 noon. Members are to bring pot luck items, including desserts that will complement the grilled burgers and hotdogs. The club will provide the meat, bread, drinks, and paper products. Debra Peterson volunteered to pick up the items provided by the club and we will reimburse her. Debra will also provide the grill. Glendle Joines said he would take care of grilling. As of now, the ride/drive route will remain the same as last year leaving from the Park traveling Hwy 890 to Squire Grove Rd. and back through Lyons Road to return to the park. A hayride wagon will also be available for those without vehicles/tractors to drive.
May 24, 2014 – Tractor Show host for City of Greenville-- This event is a co-hosted event with the City of Greenville Tourism. It’s a potentially big event for our club and we need to show support to Greenville. The City is providing the dash plates, design of flyers, and advertising in at least two area papers. Greenville requested tractors and machinery only at this show as they already have a cruise-in for another time. The Club will need volunteers to assist with parking on May 24 and to work the project ticket table. More details and flyers will be available May 3. We’ll have a signup sheet for volunteers needed at that time. Hopefully, we’ll have enough volunteers that no one will have to work all day.
A request was made to have flags made for the club. The flags would be large size and suitable for flying from a flag pole or from a tractor flag pole. Sheila will work on a design and present at the May 3rd meeting. Be prepared to vote on your favorite at that time. We currently have around 10-15 members interested in a flag. If you’d like one, please let Sheila know so that they can be ordered bulk.
Darrell concluded the meeting by stating that project tickets and flyers for the October 19th show were available today for each member.
Sheila Keeling, Secretary

Kelley, Jerry and Martha Hargrove, Danny and Diane Higgins, Grant Phillips, Robert Harris, Joe Miller, Jerry Rust, Don Laster, Sheila Keeling, and Darrell Keeling. The treasurer’s report was presented by Sheila Keeling for Terry Minuth, treasurer. Motion was made by Harold Rager and seconded to approve treasurer’s report as printed and presented. Motion carried.
Darrell Keeling gave a report of the outcome of the 8th Annual Show and Parade held October 19th with 83 members to date, 45 entries from 37 individuals despite the rain and cold conditions.
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.
