Tulare, CA

IHCC 14 held its Annual meeting on Saturday April 18, 2015 at the California Antique Farm Equipment Show in Tulare CA..


Roger Lubiens, Treasurer, led the group in the Pledge of Allegiance and called for self-introduction by twenty two members who attended.


Minutes were ready and acknowledged. Minutes were previously posted on our website.


Roger read the treasurers report that indicated $2427 in revenue for 2015 with current bank funds were reported as $4501. Financial report was accepted as presented.


The membership report indicated we have 234 active members with 13 new members joining since our April,  2014 meeting. Eighty three of our members were born after 1950. Seven members joined our chapter at the California Antique Farm Equipment Show.


The Foundation report was given highlighting activities in 2014. Titan International donated tires on the Lodi High School FFA tractor project. Twenty seven youth projects have been funded by the foundation since its inception. We have received approval to donate $1000 to the Livermore High School FFA project involving a Farmall Cub. We reviewed each of the youth projects underway throughout the state.


Roger read a list of sanctioned shows that are posted on our website for 2015. In April and May we have the antique truck show in Plymouth, and Farm Days in Rio Linda CA. In June is the Red Power Roundup (MO) and the Vista CA summer show during June 20-21 and 27-28, 2015.


Old Business: We were thanked for assisting EDGE CH 242 in establishing a 501c3 charity.


New Business:

  • Volunteers needed to sell tickets before the BBQ dinner. The pedal tractor was donated by Linder Equipment of Tulare. We’ll also be selling tickets at the two Vista shows in 2015.
  • Election of officers/board members. Don McCullough was elected to the CH14 board. Sue Hayes was elected to the Foundation board. Roger Lubiens was appointed as CH 14 president, Mark Bergthold was appointed as CH 14 treasurer; later Brent Duxbury agreed to serve as V President.
  • Open discussion was held on boosting membership. Ideas were shared from several members. We determined to be a participant at the 2016 World Ag Expo held in Tulare CA, after an open discussion of show costs and housing availability. Motel 6 has 3 reserved discounted rooms for our chapter for the February show. Our CH 14 booth will be present to encourage farmers to join Chapter 14 during the event held in Feb 2016. 

All FFA restored tractors will be featured during 2015/2016.


Meeting was adjourned as we prepared for the show’s daily parade.  Special thanks to Russ Martin, Dick Marshall, Brent Duxbury, and Terry Spahr for assisting in our breakfast held before the meeting.


Respectfully submitted,

Roger Lubiens, President
