Antique Tractor Exhibit Building Gets Big Boost

Jan -March - 2013 Newsletter = Roger Austin

Tractor Building: Reg Chester has been working with designers and others on a building that would have an antique tractor show room for visitors, tractor storage for the growing collection, and a year-round shop for repairs and restorations.

As this Newsletter goes to press, a letter from the Sweetgrass Foundation informs us that it has awarded the Museum a $10,000 matching/challenge grant in support of the construction of the Antique Tractor Exhibit Building. Every new dollar raised and received between October 1, 2013 and October 31, 2014 for this project will be matched up to a total of $10,000. The projected cost of the 4,000 square foot building is $70,000. The match of future gifts from members and friends along with gifts and pledges already received greatly enhances the chance of starting construction in 2014. The new facility will be located next to the red Collection Building. It will include a front showroom, a year round shop for restorations, and space to house the Museumís growing collection of vintage tractors. Thank you, Sweetgrass! ?
