Club / Member Info  (Donations and Contacts)
A note from Kim:

I just found out that the newsletter is canceled until farther notice, Thank you all for letting me be the editor. I truly enjoyed doing it, thank you all for saying how good of a job I was doing. I hope that when the board of the directors and officers decide  to start it up again, that I would get the chance to do it.
Also I'd  like to thank Pat Bupp and Robert Lewis for being my proof readers. Once again thank you all for making my first year of the newsletter an enjoyable one.


    Officially known as the Northwest Pennsylvania Steam Engine and Old Equipment Assn. Inc., our group formed in 1963, around the nostalgia of the steam traction engine, and the threshing process. Our club was built around a single 1911 Case engine, owned by Charles McMurray.  This engine is still a prominent feature, now owned and displayed, by the family of the late Wendell Bintrim. 
              
     In 1975, after exhibiting at the New Castle and Butler fairs, and at the Lancaster Township community center, the club purchased an abandoned strip mine located in Portersville, Pa.  Expansions have increased the show grounds to over 20 acres.
