Bring Tour Friends and Relatives to the Next Show!

The 10th annual Blanchard Millpond Steam and Gas Show is now over and what a great show it was! The weather was outstanding for all three days, August 23, 24, 25, 1996.

A saw mill that was loaned to our show by the Jerry Paulson family worked very well, and it will be there for years to come doing its job. Thanks from all of us, Jerry!

This year we featured Cockshutt and Co-op tractors and Economy engines, but there was a good showing of tractors of all brands. The gas engine area had a large turnout of engine and gas engine models.

On Friday afternoon we had visitors from one of the adult foster homes in Shepherd, and they were admitted free of charge. The children's games, again this year, were very popular.

Our Friday night horse-pull is always a crowd pleaser, and this year was no exception. Steam engines were demonstrating on the thrashing machine and the saw mill. On Saturday the Pine River Methodist Church again put on their delicious chicken BBQ, and Sunday the hog roast was offered by the Millbrook/Rolland Fire Department. They were both sold out in a very short time because the food is always so good.
