My View from the Tractor Seat
Welcome to the Southeast Wisconsin Antique Power and Collectibles Society Website. Our Club was formed in 1991 and this will be our 32nd year and we host our Annual Show, Fall Harvest
Days, in September at the Racine County Fairgrounds.
Our Club’s Members have diverse interests including antique cars, farm equipment, crafts, tractors, small engines, toys, model trains etc. We have a Club Picnic/Tractor Ride in July, and a Holiday Party in December. We are always looking for new Members and especially volunteers to help at these events and at the Show.
Our Show for 2022 went well except for Sunday’s non-cooperation from Mother Nature. This year we continued our Drive a Tractor Program at the Show, and it went so well we will be doing it again next year.
The youngsters enjoyed the experience as some of them had never been on a tractor before, much less driving one. This is done with an adult on the tractor.
For 2023 we will be featuring International Harvester/Farmall. The Show will be a State Show called a Farmall Frolic in conjunction with the International Harvester Collector’s Club Wisconsin Chapter 4.
Our Board of Director’s have decided to go back to a 2-day format for our Show, Saturday and Sunday, September 9 and 10, 2023. We are currently looking for a Raffle Tractor for the Show. We are now a 501C3 Organization so we could accept a donated tractor or a sale at a reduced rate and the owner can gain a tax credit. Any help would be appreciated. We will also be doing a Quilt raffle again next year.
Please check our website for updates and check out our Facebook Page, Our Membership Meetings are held the first Wednesday of the month at 7:30 at the Legion Hall in Union Grove.
The Club is looking for a member that is up on Computer skills to take over the position as Membership Secretary. Please contact me if there is any interest from a member.
Our Holiday Party is December 10th at the Legion Hall in Union Grove. If there is any interest in attending, please contact us through the Website.
If anyone has any questions, please use the contact page on this Website and we will get back to you. The Club has lost many Members and Member’s relatives in the past three years and their memories are with us. Stay healthy and happy in 2023.
