June 2020 is here and we hope everyone has survived the spring as well as all the worldly problems going on. We had a board meeting last week and have come up with some dates and events for the club to try and do this summer. We are planning a picnic in Carey Park here in Hutchinson Kansas on Saturday June 27th starting around 11:30 and try to eat at noon. Where at in the park has not been decided as we will have to get there and claim an area that is not currently being used. If there are no spots available or the weather is bad it will be at Bondo’s shop. Carey Park entrance is on south main street which is just a few blocks south of Bondo’s Shop.
We will also be in the Hutchinson July 4 parade this year. It will be Saturday July 4 at 10am. We will meet at Bondo’s Shop starting around 7:30am and then go as a group to the staging area probably around 9am. We do not know the stage area at this time. I will be told where to line up a day or 2 before and will pass on the info to those that may run late.
Last on the list is our August meeting will be August 1st at Goessel Kansas (Threshing Days location) at noon. The official Threshing Days weekend that happens every summer has been canceled but I hear there will be some things going on there and everyone is encouraged to bring their trucks. You can get there a few hours early if you want to from what I hear.
Since last newsletter we have lost 2 fellow Wheat State members. I was told Don Hayes passed away and Alan Waggoner who was a past member passed away. You may have remembered his very nice green 1950 Chevy truck. It was at Bondo’s shop for restoration many years ago and we got to see the truck go thru the many processes of restoration as we had meetings there at the shop. They will be missed.
