The weather wasn't exactly cooperative but those who attended the first Alpine Historical Antique Tractor Show had a great time. Hard rain in the morning kept some of the anticipated participants away, but those who attended renewed old friendships, made new acquaintances, or just had a good old time. There was a potluck for club members, a tractor ride through the apple blossoms, a photo display in the community building, and plenty of comradery. Even the weather improved as the day progressed. The Alpine Township Historical Committee wishes to thank all the participants and in particular Harold and Jo Ann Thome for their gracious hospitality.
