Pioneer Engineers Club 65th Reunion this weekend

(Continued)

With advancements in agricultural technology and assembly-line production in the 1920s and ‘30s, membership in the Brotherhood fell. Farmers could now afford to buy their very own threshing rig, which now, for the most part, consisted of a tractor and a pull-type combine. This type of harvesting equipment was much less costly and easier to maintain than the traditional steam engine and thresher. And so the old tradition of the threshing ring fell to the wayside.

In Rush County each year, people from far and near come back to remember and be a part of the The Pioneer Engineers Club Annual Reunion.
