Iowa Chapter 5
International Harvester Collectors Club
On August 8th a group of chapter members met at the Judicial building parking lot at 5:00 pm, then moved to the staging lot to wait for the parade to begin. We were number 109 out of 147 entries. We had 8 members bring tractors to ride in the parade. I want to thank Don Rimathe for all the years he has organized the parade group. Also to thank Don for providing the banner on his tractor that identified our group as Chapter 5. A big thank you to the 8 chapter members that brought their tractors to Des Moines to participate in the parade. There was another group of tractor collectors there who had quite a few more tractors than we did. I would like to challenge the member of Chapter 5 to participate in the parade and match or exceed the other tractor clubs participation in the parade. Next years parade will be August 7th, 2019.
If you would like to participate this in next year's State Fair Parade, Jeff Eldred will now be handling this event. Please contact him at 641-521-0029. Thank you Jeff for doing this event!
