HAY BALER? NO, A HAY PRESS
(Page 6 of 6)
By talking to people afterwards I found out the whole problem is
that two cylinder John Deeres can't be used for belt work. My
father, who has had a two cylinder John Deere on a belt for about
10,000 hours, does not agree.
The people who made the exhibit for the 1985 Old Threshers
Reunion were Jim Whiritt who came all the way from Texas and was
there for the entire five days to help get the exhibit set up and
ready to make everything work. The others who were willing to get
straw down their necks were Rob Swailes and Joel Proenneke young
men who graduated from Mount Pleasant Community High School in May
of 1985; Mark Crull, Larry Shelly, and Bob Diamond who are all
seniors at Mount Pleasant Community High School; and, of course,
myself. I want to thank each of these people for giving of their
time and energy. I hope they will all be there to pitch in next
year, starting on August 29th and ending on September 1st, when we
will once again show our many visitors how the 'good old
days' really were.
To the average Old Threshers Reunion goer, the threshing
demonstration is a lot of mystery and a little magic.
