Auctioneers’ Note

Mark your calendars now and plan ahead for this large and interesting 2-day estate auction for the late Winston Smith. Winston started the Eastern Iowa Threshers Association, which was held on his farm each year for many years. It was an event in which people came from long distances. He was also awarded   “Thresher of the Year”­ at the Mt. Pleasant, Iowa Midwest Old Threshers Show. In the earlier years, Winston owned and operated Smith’s Trucking & Corn Shelling Business, Smith’s Machine Shop and also farmed. Mr. Smith was well respected by his peers and we have had countless individuals comment on how talented he was and how he took time to visit with each and every one of them. We hope you make plans to attend this unique event!
