The winner of the 4020 John Deere pedal tractor is Roger Shumard of Rockfield, IN. He and his wife purchased their tickets at the 50 Years of Progress Show. He was thrilled to get the pedal as he collects pedals and will add it to his collection. The Shumards were gracious enough to meet me at the K&H Truck stop in Gilman, to receive their pedal tractor. I think it is going to a great home.
A great big thank you goes out to Jerry and Linda Tibbs of Topeka, IL for donating our 2020 raffle pedal tractor. It is an International 1066 model that appears to be original and needs nothing. The raffle tickets are printed and ready for our members to sell. Again, thanks so much for the pedal and donation to the Club.
Plan ahead for some fun. CIGC was invited by Will County Threshermen to attend a tour of George Schaff’s collection on February 29th, 10 am. Afterward, we will go to Aurelio’s Pizza, in Frankfort, IL. For those of you who have not been, this is a rare opportunity to see a collection of some of the finest tractors in the region. You will also see his shop where the one of nones are brought back to life. Don’t miss this opportunity.
