Greetings everyone! Reminder that the annual meeting is less than a week away! The annual meeting will be held June 5th in the expo building on the west side of the grounds. The meeting with elections will start at 3pm. Supper will be served after the meeting around 6 from one of the food stands on expo hill. More info on the elections and members running can be found in the newsletter.

The "Bargain Barn" will be open in the model engine building, just west of the administration building, from 9am to 2:45pm. Stop by to check out the merchandise and score some super deals!

There are lots of things to do to start getting ready for the 2021 show so come out and enjoy the whole weekend with friends and get started on some projects! Project boards are in the administration building with a few projects listed. Grounds always need cleanup and TLC especially after taking a year off.

Looking forward to seeing all of you and catching up as we prepare for the 2021 show!

***Bargain Barn Update***

Hello all! Super excited to see everyone this weekend! We have all kinds of smokin deals waiting for you at the bargain barn, however due to some issues with our credit card processing company we are unable to take credit cards this weekend. We are working with the company to get this resolved so we can take credit cards over father's day weekend. Cash and checks will be accepted for purchases. Be sure to stop at an ATM so you can take advantage of these great deals! We apologize for this inconvenience.

An update from President Duane Hovelsrud:

Warm greetings to all!!
With that being said and the 100 degree forecast for tomorrow afternoon, we have decided to hold our annual meeting at the Mercantile on the showgrounds. That building has working Air Conditioning and should be a more comfortable venue. I apologize for the changes in location, but who knew it would 100 degrees on the 5th of June??
Please use your best judgement on attending should the heat be of concern to you.

Hi everyone,

I was asked to read the Roll Call of Deceased Members at the Annual Meeting.
What an honor to be asked to read the list!
Some of the names were difficult to read. Not that they are hard to pronounce, they were just difficult to read.
If you know of other members that should be on the list, please post the names.
