Saturday and Sunday, July 8, 9, 1995 the Ashland County Yesteryear Machinery Club of Ashland County, Ohio, was blessed with the best weekend of the summer. The weather was sunny and cool, so a large crowd attended both days at the Ashland County-West Holmes Career Center on State Route 60, south of Ashland.
About 100 tractors, 125 gas engines and 50 garden tractors were displayed. Wheat was threshed with John McNaull's F-30 Farmall, and a 22-inch McCormick Deering thresher. The straw was baled with an Ohio baler owned by Bob Wiley. A very rare navy bean thresher was shown, and the owner said it was purchased in Michigan as most of the beans were grown there. A band saw was sawing lumber, and the slabs were buzzed-up on an old buzz saw. A very old Wooster separator, made in nearby Wooster, Ohio was displayed. Maple syrup was made the old fashioned way, and corncob-jelly making was demonstrated. Live music was played most of both days by local musicians, some of whom were club members. A machinery parade was run both days from the show grounds to the Hart-land Home of Ashland County and back again.
A nice church service was held on Sunday morning. Good food was avail able on the grounds so everyone was well fed.
The club wishes to thank everyone who exhibited: our sponsors, food vendors, crafts folks, flea market vendors, and spectators who made the 1995 show a success.
On Saturday, April 27, 1996, a Swap Meet will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., at the Career Center. Food will be available on the grounds.
Saturday and Sunday July 13, 14, 1996, will be our fifth annual show. Plan to attend both events. For information, call Dave Booth, (419) 289-0456.
