Events Calendar


June 2020, dates will be coming. Drive to Dyersville, Iowa and attend Ertl’s Toy Show. We do have another contact in the West Union, Iowa area and we may stop there if they are willing to show us their collections of a lot of nice things. Holly and I were there. It is absolutely amazing and unbelievable!! Maybe if enough go along, we can talk them into hosting and having the local FFA chapter put on a fundraising steak or pork chop BBQ dinner for us. Next, we will head west to the “Little Brown Church in the Vale” just outside of Nashua, Iowa. Then we will go on to Mason City and Clear Lake, Iowa. – home of the Surf Ballroom and “the day the music died”.- referring to the Buddy Holly memorial between the 2 towns. Heading west from the Mason City area we will travel to Sanborn, Iowa. For those of you that were on the car trip in ’15 or ’16 we stopped at the Yesterday’s Museum. We saw a 200 fire truck collection, car collection, truck collection and just about anything that was made. You’ll find it there in a collection of some sort. The museum was under construction when we visited there last time. The owner told me building construction is completed now. Also, on the east side of town there is a used Corvette sales we can visit.
