Al has been a valued member of our club for 19 years. He immediately started serving the club working the shows, selling raffle tickets at remote events, and serving on the “Tuesday Crew”.
“Tuesday Crew” is our name for those members who come every Tuesday to maintain and improve our grounds and equipment. Al faithfully served on the Tuesday Crew for many years until health issues slowed him down.
Al has been working our shows for all 19 years. In his early days, he drove the people wagon around to give guests an easy way to get from display to display, and helped with our demonstrations. These days, he is the friendly and encouraging face at the gate, welcoming and directing our guests.
Al has often taken on some of the less prestigious tasks of shows. Al recognized the need for more trash receptacles and supplied them, and he also was the guy behind the scenes making sure they were emptied and maintained.
Away from the grounds, Al and his wife Brenda continue to promote our club by participating in local parades and festivals. He and Brenda are often at events in Houston, Licking, Republic, and Cabool, showing off our raffle tractor and selling tickets to win it.
Al has also made many unseen donations of lumber or materials to help build and maintain our grounds and buildings. Al is not one of those high profile members who everyone notices, but he has consistently worked for all these years to improve our club. Let us surprise Al by letting him know we noticed all the things he has done for our club.
