Homeplace Site of Antique Tractor Show June 16, 2012

News from Homeplace on Green River
Homeplace on Green River will be the site of the sixteenth annual Russell Creek/Homeplace on Green River Antique Gas Engine and Tractor Show Saturday, June 16, 2012. The show is free for everything from parking to the activities. There will be a nominal charge for food offered by food vendors.
This is the same well-known gas engine and tractor show sponsored by Garrison Construction for the past 16 years. Lewis Garrison has moved the show to Homeplace because of the added parking and available facilities at the historic farm.
In addition to the gas engines and tractors there will be other activities including the pedal tractor pull for young folks that has been so popular at the show over the years. There will also be a children's art area supervised by Dr. Tricia Day who is associate professor of recreation, tourism and sport management at Lindsey Wilson College. Activities will include painting, drawing and writing. Like all other activities it will be free. Children can participate on a drop-in basis any time between 10amET/9amCT and noon ET/11amCT, but young children should be accompanied by a parent.
There will also be a free photography workshop open to all ages between 9amET/8amCT and 11amET/10amCT. It will be limited to the first 15 persons who sign up by contacting Lindsey Wilson Associate Professor of Journalism David Goguen via e-mail at goguend@at Lindsey.edu. Participants must bring their own cameras. The workshop will begin at the historic Homeplace home.
The show typically draws hundreds of people from a wide area and offers an excellent family experience at little or no cost. George Kolbenschlag
