A big thanks to our 2014 ICCC Convention Hosts Dave
DeFrates and Joy Mogg. We started the convention festivities at Dave's
home with a tour of Dave's collection, then enjoyed an evening riding in
Model A cars, eating pulled pork and catching up with old friends. Then
it was on to enjoying three more days of the convention at the fair
grounds and camp grounds. There was home made ice cream, Amish buggy
rides and 2 very nice light ups. The displays were great and the sales
tables were overflowing with everything you can imagine. The seminars
were informational and enjoyable. Thank You everyone that pitched in to
help make everything run smoothly.
Next years 2015 convention will be hosted by Ed & Melenda Erb in
Walnut Creek Ohio. The 2016 convention is going to be hosted by Mel
Taylor in Las Cruces New Mexico.
Leonard Johnson from Dallas Texas is the clubs new Treasurer. Jim
(Smitty) Smith from Cannon Falls Mn. is the clubs new Vice President.
John Stendahl remains secretary for one more year & I will stay on
as president for one more year. Tim Murphy (Murff) is now the newsletter
editor. Ed Dennis also remains as ICCC webmaster.
I would like to thank Peter Ecklund and Bud Michaels for all the hard work they did for the club and I hope that they will continue to contribute to our club for many years. Updates on the new ICCC collectors book will be coming soon.
