Chapter 14 Minutes

Courtland, CA

October 17, 2015


IHCC 14 held its Fall meeting on Saturday October 17, 2015 at the member Neuharth’s farm called Steamboat Acres on the Sacramento River.

Roger Lubiens, President, led the group in the Pledge of Allegiance and called for self-introduction by twenty four members who attended, with Tim Neuharth leading the discussion on a history of his family farm.

Minutes were ready and approved by motion of Jim Marshall and Dick Marshall. Minutes were previously posted on our website and published in our newsletter.

Roger read the treasurers report that indicated $4800 in revenue for 2015 with current bank funds reported as $4303. Financial report was accepted as presented.

The membership report indicated we have 221 active members with 16 new members joining the chapter. Thirty eight of our members were born after 1960. Members were encouraged to bring new members to IH Collectors.

The Foundation report was given highlighting activities in 2015. Titan International donated $3500 tires to the Wheatland HS FFA which was also featured on RFD-TV by Max Armstrong. These youth sold their restored tractors for $15000 at the County Fair. Ongoing FFA projects include the Lodi, Livermore, Clovis, Porterville, San Fernando, and Carpinteria HS.

Roger read a list of sanctioned shows that are posted on our website for 2016. We discussed upcoming parades for Veterans Day, Mandarin Festival, Thanksgiving Parade, and three Christmas parades that take place the balance of 2015.  Watch for further details on 2016 Farm to Fork and 2016 Sacramento Air Show where Chapter 14 will have a designated booth near the runway.

Old Business:

  • Volunteers are needed for the World AG Expo in Feb 2016 as we are hosting a booth at this show; this show attracts 100,000+ farmers and visitors.
  • Vacancies occur in 2016 on both the chapter 14 and foundation board; Dick Marshall, Brent Duxbury, and John Rochester terms are expiring.

New Business:

  • Winter meeting will be held in Feb 2016, either in Manteca or Los Banos. Details will be confirmed and published.
  • National convention will be held in March located in the state of Missouri.
  • Setup and operation of chapter booth for Tulare show in April; we discussed the shortcomings of the Tulare Show and where improvements are needed
  • Lorli from AG Museum gave us an update on museum changes

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

Meeting was adjourned as we prepared for lunch prepared by our hosts at Steamboat Acres- tasty pork, lamb, and BBQ chicken. Special thanks to Tim and Michael Neuharth for hosting our Fall meeting at their farm.

Respectfully submitted,


Roger Lubiens, President
