  The Pioneer Power Club held it’s 8th annual Antique Tractor and Engine Show on May 7-9. It was a show for all tractor enthusiasts and has grown steadily in the last eight years. This year we grew to a total of 201 tractors and antique gas engines, There was a petting zoo, crafts, live demonstrations, kiddie pedal tractor pull,  woodturning, music performers  as well as several vendors that drove hundreds of miles to attend.   Door prizes were awarded throughout the day on Saturday.

Exhibitors and vendors were present from Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana. Many spectators came out to see and show their equipment of the days gone by.

The Pioneer Power Club is actively involved in community functions and events thoughout the year. Club members are always eager to participate in parades and community activities.

Each year we award the Roy T. Miles Memorial Scholarship to a deserving senior towards their education. The scholarship was set up after the passing of one of the founding members of the club in the amount of $750. The intent is to help the younger generation obtain the level of education that they desire to accomplish.

The Pioneer Power Club would like to thank all the sponsors that supported this show. We would like to thank all the people that came and visited; we had an excellent crowd of people in attendance. Without the local sponsors & the community support this show would not be possible and continue to grow. We would like to especially thank Greg Braun of Kentucky Motor Service and Deanie Miller of Miller Auto Sales for whole heartedly supporting us and making this event possible each year. Please take the time to thank Greg and Deanie for their support when visiting them.

We are already working on the 2011 show, if anyone would like to have a vendor booth, craft booth, provide entertainment, etc. we would be happy to hear from you.
