In addition to our main show in September, the club has hosted and participated in other events throughout the years.
One of our longest running event is the Columbia Station Engine Show. It was started in 1976 by Dave Sampson and Roger Fitch who wanted to have a small show. Members of the Kiwanis Club thought the Columbia Township Park was the perfect location and sponsored the show. To gather interest in the show, area businesses donated door prizes to be given away to exhibitors. That show took off and continues to draw exhibitors and spectators from all over Ohio. After Dave moved to sunny Florida his son, Tom, took over organizing the show that is enjoyed by all.
Another long running event is the Spring Warm-up and Plow Days. For over 20 years the Gordon Farm has hosted a show that includes anything from models to stationary engines to horse drawn plowing to a scooter cruise-in; and of course tractor plowing. This event concludes with a Potluck lunch held in there workshop.
Other events throughout the years include exhibiting at the Lorain County Fair, the Olmsted Historical Society Car and Engine show, and the Piston Power Show. Our members have also been a part of area bicentennial celebrations. The season ends with a Members Fall Potluck held at the Heritage Barn in October.
