History of the Organziation
In the summer of 1999 in Mocksville, NC, 3 individuals, Benny Dyson, WC Phipps and Harley Howell, discussed forming a tractor and antique engine club. They decided to gather other interested individuals within the community of Mocksville. After assembling 30 members, a charter was formed and the organization officially became the "Piedmont Antique Power Association, Inc." or "PAPA" in January of 2000.
In the early years of the association, they held their monthly meetings at various local government and community facilities around the Town of Mocksville. Today, thanks to the Davie County Senior Services Center of Mocksville, we are able to hold our monthly meetings at their new facility. The PAPA celebrated its 13th anniversary in July of 2012.
The PAPA is a non-profit organization, which distributes some of its proceeds to various charitable organizations throughout the community. The club holds several annual fund raising events each year. The club is currently setting aside some of its proceeds to fund the purchase of a parcel of land on which we intend to construct a building for club meetings and to house a tractor and antique engine museum. We welcome anyone interested in tractors or antique engines to join our association.
