Nov. 6, GKCTCC Meeting and White Elephant Auction starting at 2 pm. It will be held at the G. A. Salmon farm, north of Creighton, MO. During this time we need to approve the June meeting minutes, discuss and approve a slate of officers for 2023, establish a budget committee, plan for a tractor display at the Western Farm Show in February, discuss the Annual Tractor Cruise at the Ag. Hall, determine hosts / locations for the 2023 meetings, and have the raffle drawing. The white elephant auction will follow the formal meeting. As you know the white elephant auction is a fundraiser for the club so look around and see what you could do without and bring it along. Just remember --- “someone’s junk may be another person’s treasure.” We also need nice things for the auction. Desserts and snacks are welcome. The Salmon family will be providing pulled pork for consumption during the auction. GA is also wanting to sell the Number 44 pull-type plow that he bought at Glenn Ratzlaff's auction, with proceeds going to the scholarship fund! Bring your trailer and as GA will have the tractor and loader there to load it. Thanks to the Salmon family for hosting the meeting.
