If you have an interest in antique or classic farm equipment, agricultural history, or pioneer skills, then you need to be a member of the Pioneer Harvest Fiesta!
Annual dues are $10.00 per person. Membership benefits include: monthly meetings, a monthly newsletter, a commemorative button, and admission to the Annual Show held the last weekend in September.
You’ll also get to meet a group of friendly, hard-working people who are dedicated to preserving our rural past.
We have volunteer opportunities available for everyone, both during the Annual Show and throughout the year. A few examples of volunteer activities include: helping with the wheat harvest, participating in area parades, giving demonstrations on farm equipment, repairing and maintaining show grounds and equipment, helping with spring plowing, and tending the corn crop. If you’re looking for something less strenuous, you can help staff the exhibit booth at fairs and home shows, work at the quilt show, take tickets, fold brochures, give tours to school children, or participate on committees. Whatever your skills are, we can use them!
