A Little History...

Our first THRESHEREE (Steam Show) was held in 1986. The show was a huge success and the club has been hosting the event ever since.

The Thresheree is always held the weekend after Labor Day, at the Pickett Steam Club Grounds. There are 120 families which represent more than two hundred members. Single members are also welcomed. The club holds monthly and annual meetings, fund raisers, pedal pulls for the youth and participates in many area parades.
