Jr Flywheelers Program

The Club operates a Jr. Flywheelers Program for kids ages 12 -18 that are dedicated to the preservation of vintage equipment and antique engines.  The Jr. Flywheelers program helps educate our youth on the importance of preserving our past, while having allot of fun at the same time. Our club participates in many activities. 

These include learning how to operate farm equipment, learning how to work on tractors and engines, learning safety precautions around moving equipment, and most important, helping out to prepare for the Western New York Gas and Steam Association Annual Rally. The Jr. Flywheelers play an important role in helping out at the show grounds.

Annual Events include Kids Day, Peddle Pulls and a Kids Parade during the Annual Rally, and the Harvest Hoedown fundraiser.  Kids Day is a day where the community is invited to tour the grounds, have a lite lunch and ice cream, and see our working sawmill and blacksmith shop.  Our Pedal Pulls are held during the Annual Rally for the little ones 3-12 years age actually pull a sled with pedal tractors.  The Kid’s Parade is held on the grounds for the older kids to bring out a lawnmower, tractor, etc. and they start at the track, parade the grounds with their equipment, and end up at the Ice Cream Stand for a free ice cream cone during our Annual Rally.  The Harvest Hoedown is a dinner/dance fundraiser to benefit the Jr. Programs and held in October or November each year.

The Jr. Flywheelers are looking for a mentor who will be there at all the meetings and plan fun educational gatherings to provide some teaching and leadership.  They need a person who is good with kids.  Someone who knows about, has knowledge of farm equipment and engines, and is there to guide and assist when the kids are working on a project.  It is also important that the Jr. Flywheelers have a director that has a good sense of safety. Please give this some consideration and contact the Western New York Gas and Steam Engine Association if you are interested in leading the Jr. Flywheelers. vintage equipment and antique engines.
