The following is an excerpt from the constitution and by-laws, which was drafted over thirty years ago ...
The purpose of the PSAT&MA shall be to promote the collection, restoration, preservation, and exhibition of gas and steam tractors, gas and steam stationary engines, farm machinery of early local industries.
Tools and machines have enhanced mans ability to produce the necessities of life. They have given man the opportunity to devote part of his short existence on Earth to the pursuit of spiritual and intellectual activities that set him apart from Earth's lesser inhabitants.
As the Executive Board and Trustees of the PSAT&MA, we are proud to call ourselves members of such a great organization.
The Puget Sound Antique Tractor & Machinery Association is located in Lynden Washington. For 49 years we have held our annual threshing bee and tractor show known as Vintage Farming Days at Berthusen Park west of the Dutch town of Lynden. Our show includes threshing demonstrations, antique tractors, steam engines, daily parades, steam powered saw mill demonstrations, swap meet, kid's candy scramble, tractor pulls and so much more! Family fun for everyone!
