Your Medina County Antique Power Association
The Medina County Antique Power Association is an organization of like-minded individuals and families who desire to keep alive the ways of farming with the mechanical equipment of yesteryear. We welcome all who are interested in farm equipment, lawn care, and other antiques used around the farm. You don’t have to own a tractor to be a member. If you just want to learn about antique power equipment, then you belong in our club! We normally meet on the first Saturday of the month at Guilford Town Hall at 6:30 PM. Check out the bottom of the page for the next meeting date, time, and location.
This is a non-profit organization. We have a few shows every year and also participate in the Medina County Fair. Our big show is usually held in July and is a two-day event! This is when we promote our show book that we put together every year. It is a wonderful event for the whole family, featuring games for the kids, a small flea market, food and fun, and of course our exhibit of vintage tractors and equipment!
Our group likes to gather and have fun throughout the year. We would love to have you be a part of it! Dues are due between January 1st to March 1st and the cost for dues is $25.

Why A Parade?
Back in 1954, a gentleman by the name of John Wanko at the Medina Farmers Exchange sold a record number of New Holland small square hay balers that year. In order to celebrate the event, he organized a parade. Each new baler owner came in and hooked their tractors to the newly acquired implements. They were led by a Cadillac Convertible and other cars. In these automobiles were Lt. Gov. John Brown, O.C. Duke, and Miss Kunkle. Miss Kunkle served as the "Hay Queen" for the event. The parade had roughly 30 participants and was a spectacular event that many people came to witness.
