Tri-State President Ted held the October monthly meeting in the barn on his property. Ted shares that he grew up in rural northern Indiana. On his Ohio property, he has had horses and chickens and much lawn to mow. His farm is located in an area that was the basis of a 1901 novel about the area. Ted has become friends with a grandson of the farmer who worked the land over a hundred years ago. The meeting also served as a pot- luck. A hike was also offered to members. Ted noted the trail is uphill starting out, which means it's downhill coming back.
