area where it was this year.
4. Possibly having tours to the McCormick Farm on Friday and Saturday.
5. Suggested having a church service Sunday morning
The camping for the Show will be $35.00 per night. The club will be responsible for collecting the fees. ALL CAMPING will be in the lower area of the Fairgrounds near the cattle barns.
It was recommended that we get our shirts from the same supplier we used for this year.
The club has a donation of a Cub Cadet, to be restored, from L&M Parts. After restoration, the Cub Cadet would be auctioned off at our Show Auction. This would be an ongoing yearly donation if the club wants to restore one each year. After discussion a motion was made by Steve Kegley to take on this project. It was seconded by Ron Kniceley. The motion carried. The exhibit by members at Farming in the Valley scheduled for October 8 is rescheduled for
