The winter months are finally upon us, I hope everyone is prepared. Bonnie and I bought a 917H with several attachments including a right angle pto, vac system, front blade, 48” mower, plow and a snowblower. I now have five Allis snowblowers and one Simplicity plus the D-grader. Snow knows it will not stay long on our drives.
We had the director’s meeting in October, eight directors were in attendance, Dave Maddox was unable to attend. It was decided that the membership meeting will be April 10, 2021 and would be the kick-off for The Allis Connection’s thirtieth anniversary and decided that there will be commemorative items for the attendees. Be thinking what you were doing thirty years ago. Those celebrating thirtieth anniversaries, birthdays, and graduations in 2021 and in attendance will be acknowledged along with The Allis Connection.
It was decided that the 2021 scholarship subject will be, “The History of Allis-Chalmers Involvement in Electrical Generation”. For more information on this program as well as submission date and rules can be found elsewhere in the newsletter and on www.theallisconnection.com website. It is a great deal for our folks who are enrolling in advanced education including college, tech school or university short course.
We reviewed membership, calendar sales, merchandise sales and inventories as well as the facebook page. It was decided that we would place a few items on our facebook page for sale for the Christmas season; take an opportunity and visit the allis connection facebook page if interested. There have been several people that have asked for some kind of a catalog of our merchandise, I am currently putting something together if anyone is interested, give me a call.
We also voted to continue the calendar program for the 15th edition; if you are interested in being part of the calendar be sure and get a photo to Dale Heintz as soon as possible for consideration and evaluation.
Have been working on my 20-35 Model E and finding it hard to find the correct paint color. I finally called Luke Olson in Wisconsin and Dave Maddox in Missouri for help. Both responded and were able to help. Thought I would put a couple of pictures of the tractor to show that I am making progress. Till next time hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a great start to 2021 as we leave 2020 in the dust of history.
