We received a tribute in honor of William “Bill” Wacek. The family wrote, “One of his big enjoyments was attending your presentations of all your steam and gas engines. -- He would go all by himself and stay the whole day and talk about it for weeks. --- I hope your club continues on so that others may enjoy the machines as much as Bill did.“
North Central WI Antique Steam & Gas Engine Club, Inc is a 501c3 nonprofit corporation. Our mission is to preserve our rural, agricultural, forestry and homesteading heritage and educate future generations in all aspects of that heritage.
To assist our club in performing this mission, tax deductible donations are always welcome. These donations can be targeted to the following areas:
Youth Building general expenses. We offer the use of this building to local youth and educational groups for meetings and activities throughout the year.
Barn/Music Hall Upkeep. We have restored our 1916 barn and will be using it for our polka dance hall.
Log Cabin Restoration. Our log cabin is an authentic log cabin from the area. We will be restoring the building, and this will require outstanding funding.
Strupp Rural School. This is an authentic rural school, moved to our grounds for preservation and display.
Pancake House and Kitchen. Our club is looking to expand this area to keep our famous Buckwheat Pancakes available.
Flea Market Grounds Improvements. This year, a drainage ditch was added to make it drier for our guests if it should rain during our show. We are looking at other areas to improve.
Campgrounds Improvements. We have added additional lighting and gravel lanes to improve safety.
General Fund. This is where all payments are deposited. If you are not certain where to donate, this will allow the club to use your donation where it is most needed.
