In 2008 a program was established called the U6DER 21 CLUB for kids ages 5 to 21. It was renamed YOUNG COLLECTORS in 2010 and we currently have several young people involved ages 5 to 18, both boys and girls. They have their own projects that involve antique farm related items. They help us during the year and at our show in September doing different projects and displays, while working with other club members as a team effort. We have a special club logo just for them to wear while at the shows. We are proud of these young people and believe that they are the FUTURE OF OUR HOBBY AND OUR CLUB.


If you have a child that would like to be involved here are the requirements:

1) Boys and girls from the ages of 5 through 18 will be eligible.

2) They must have a family member that is currently a member of the AETA.

3) They must own their displays and be Ag-related. Farm machinery, farm tools, hit-miss engines, lawn and garden tractors (pre-1984), farm tractors and horse equipment are acceptable.

The club will furnish one laminated ID tag with the Childs name and city and state. Extra ID tags can be purchased at CREATIVE IMAGES in Geneseo, IL. 309-944-4299 Kids special logo on hats and shirts are available from Kim at Along the Trail Embroidery 815-535-1758 or (These are not required but helps to show that these kids are part of our club.) We will have active displays and demonstrations of farm related equipment and activities dating back to the early 1900s.
