WHAT IS A "CLUB"?
DEFINITION: AN ASSOCIATION OF PERSONS FOR THE PROMOTION OF SOME COMMON OBJECT, AS IN LITERATURE, GOOD FELLOWSHIP, ETC... ESPECIALLY ONE JOINTLY SUPPORTED AND MEETING PERIODICALLY.
I belong to a Club, an organization of friends and acquaintances to get together and work toward a common goal. In the spirit of our Club, this is the preservation, restoration, and display of various items used in agriculture in years past.
Some of us restore and display articles of housekeeping, such as gas-engine-powered washing machines and all of the accessories that were used in quote the good ol days. Others of us, take engines destined for the junkyard and have them performing what can be described as near miracles due to their age, such as cooling the area, generating electricity, crushing rocks, and many other jobs. Also, there are those who work on and display tractors of various sizes, colors, makes, and models. but all have been used in producing a greater United States of America whose agriculture, if given free rein, can feed a major part of the world without working much harder than we do today. In the future, we should concentrate on working together to make our Club a cohesive unit dedicated to not only restoring and displaying the products of our hobbies, but also maintain a spirit of cooperativeness with each other in the Club, which is our tool and vehicle to accomplish the aims of the Club as we originally stated them. It must be remembered that we are the Club, not I or They or Them or any other figure of speech.
It is US that makes the Club.
And if we don't enjoy or have fun doing what we do, why do it?
