Open House at Greenfield Store

Open house was held at Siever's Case-IH store in Greenfield, IL on Thursday evening. Congratulations to them on aquiring 2 more stores to their business, bringing their total Case-IH dealerships to 5.
The Greenfield store is where Steve has been employed for the last 18 years.
After he took employment there, we became interested in collecting the old Farmall lineage, which then became International Harvester, McCormick-Deerling was in there somewhere too, then Case bought the company. Today the company goes by the name of Case-IH. Most likely if you see red in the field, it will be Case-IH product.
At the open house, Steve and I were

honored to be asked to display one of our collection. Steve chose the little 1948 Farmall C, which we restored last year. It now belongs to our granddaughter Kiley, as she will learn to drive it when she gets older.

The Greenfield store hosted a fish fry for
customers in appreciation for their business and loyality over the years. Many turned out for the evening, and all had a good time and got to see some of the new equipment, tractors and combines offered. The GM of store worked hard getting things ready, and did the employee's this past 2 weeks for this special evening.

Melanie, Dave, Kiley and I attended the event for a while. I couldn't resist taking pictures, but I didn't take enough to really do justice to the changes which have taken place. Under new management and dedicated employee's, I am sure the farmers will be stopping in often, even just to visit and shot the bull with them all.
I know I wear the logo of the Case-IH company proud and I am not employed there. lol And I am sure for years to come, the collection of the older tractors will still flow through our blood.
