founded in 1936. The pictures below were taken at the October Awards Night
and Celebration. Member Al Dekker set up a presentation of memorabilia for viewing.
There are also pictures of the 1952 and 1960 Annual Fall
Show which featured thousands of entries.
There are also pictures from 1999 when the “hoophouse” was erected.
