Hope Agricultural Heritage Club Open House & BBQ

Held at the Antique Machinery Centre on June 1 and 2

Hello Everyone,

          I figured I should write a short story of the Open House & BBQ weekend on June 1st and 2nd before I forget what happened. First of all, it never rained on the weekend!! This was very exciting for the members as we didn’t have to set up some tents and everyone had room to sit inside the building or outside during the Sunday evening BBQ.

          Over the weekend many visitors came and viewed the equipment and talked to our members about what some of the equipment was used for or discussed how they remembered using some the items on the farm when they were younger. Brought back many memories of sore backs. The Bantam Excavator was running, and the Waukesha Engine was started several times drawing a crowd with its noise, plus periodically the hit and miss engine driving a grain grinder drew a crowd of interested folks. Our Latest additional building was open, and many people were seen in it admiring all the equipment inside.

          The Bare had the HAHClub BBQ going for those that wanted a hamburger or hot dog during the visit and it also kept the members on duty for the weekend. The big BBQ happened on Sunday night; attendance was 224 and I am sorry to say that the response for tickets late in the afternoon was overwhelming. We had to turn people away, which broke my heart but as we have advertised for years ADVANCE TICKETS ONLY! Hayden Taylor needs to know attendance 4 to 5 days in advance for food preparation so we do a little guessing from past experiences but there are limits on over booking! In the future PLEASE GET YOUR TICKETS in advance and EARLY. We would like to see you there!

          Thanks to John Buchan and members for organizing the music again this year. Also, Lawrence Finnie from Garden Hill won the lottery draw for $150.00 Sunday evening. Thanks to our club members for their work during the weekend and clean up afterwards. Thanks to everyone attending and supporting the HAHClub and the Antique Machinery Centre. Several people over the weekend made some substantial financial donations to the AMC.

                                                                            Your grateful President,             Earl Ashby
