Welcome to International Harvester Collectors of Indiana Chapter 7
Greetings, Chapter 7 Members.
It has been a while since our last update. I hope that all of you are as ready as I am to get out and see each other. We have some fun things planned for this year, so let’s get right to it.
First, we have our state show, hosted by the Johnson County Antique Machinery Club in Johnson County, Indiana. This will be their 30th Anniversary, so let’s show them our support. The show is June 17- 19 and the meeting will be at 11 am on the 19th. We will have our election at this meeting. The directors whose terms are up this year are Brad Craft, Dwayne Hansford, and Dawn Dieckmann. If you are interested in running as a director, please contact the nominating committee, Ben Chestnut, Randy Barrett, Brian Pierce, or Emmett Webb.
I have told the Board that I would like to retire. Don’t worry, I will always be part of Chapter 7, and I have enjoyed my time on the Board, first as Secretary, then as Treasurer, and finally, President. I have met many people and gone to numerous shows. Some of you may not realize that Chapter 7 made IH Collectors Club history when I was elected as President. We are the first Club to have a female President. Hopefully, I won’t be the last.
Charlie Craft resigned as a Director due to some health issues. Charlie has been an avid supporter of Chapter 7 and we will miss him on the Board. Randy Barrett has agreed to complete his term, which ends in 2022.
Second, our third quarter meeting will now be hosted by the Randolph County Antique Club on July 17 at 11 am. Their address is 701 E County Road 200S, Winchester, IN 47394. They are located 2 miles south of Winchester on Highway 27. If you have any questions regarding this show, please contact Jeff Boyer (765) 744-1390 or Dave Umberger (765) 744-9334.
Our fourth quarter meeting would normally be held at a plow day, but we have decided not to have a one this year, since it would be so close to the auction. Instead, we will be meeting at Ted Everett’s auction facility on October 10 at 4 pm. This will allow everyone to become familiar with the site and know what we need to do on auction day. We are accepting early consignments. The flyer and consignment forms are available on our website www.ihcin7.net. Please keep in mind that we will need November 4 – 6. We will need to get items organized; we need ringmen on Friday night and people to drive tractors on Saturday.
We’re looking forward to an event filled year. We hope to see all of you soon.
Dawn Dieckmann, President

We all have so much on our mind; we tend to forget some things. Chapter 7 dues are due July 1st of each year. National by-laws state “that if a member does not pay his dues by October 1st, that member will be removed from the active membership and placed on the inactive list.”
If you have not paid your 2021 dues, please send $10.00 for the State and $15.00 for the National ($25.00) to:
Emmett Webb, Membership Secretary
P.O. Box 371
Dublin, IN 47335
Just reminder to our members: Check and make sure your address is correct, because there will be NO MORE forwarding of returned HARVESTER HIGHLIGHTS.
Emmett Webb, Membership Secretary
