The IHC Charitable Trust wants to collect money to work on a Farmall B with a cotton picker that is in Alabama.

After discussion, Eddie Bartley made a motion to donate the $500.00 with the stipulation that the money would be earmarked for work on the Farmall B with the cotton picker. Mark Tanis seconded the motion. The motion carried.
There was some discussion about having a table at the Winter Convention in Winston Salem, NC. The Chapter would not sell any items but have information about The McCormick Farm and some memorabilia that could be locked up in cases. If there is an interest in this, there needs to be some discussion about manning the table.
There has been discussion about changing the date of the Summer Show due to conflicts with Red Power dates. There would have to be discussion with the Fairgrounds. The second weekend in July would be a possible alternative date. There will be more discussion after more information is available.
Discussion about the National Auction will continue at the December Meeting after Roger Baker is able to get more information.
As there was no other business, a motion was made by Pope Reed to adjourn. It was seconded by Jerry McDonald. The motion carried.
