The good ol' days

Harold Steele of rural Princeton demonstrates the use of the antique corn sheller process, as he will also do during this weekend’s spring preview planned by the Bureau Valley Antique Club. Steele and his wife Margie will host the event at their farm, located on the northeast outskirts of Dover. The event is set for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, with no admission charged.

Other demonstrations at Saturday’s spring preview will include sheep shearing, hand-cranked ice cream making, stone grinding of corn and wheat, rope making, loom weaving, and treadle-powered wood cutting. Antique cars and motorcycles will be displayed; a lunch stand and sitting areas will be available. As a special feature an Armed Forces Day program is set for 1 p.m., with guest speaker Don Elmore who was a helicopter pilot during the Vietnam War.
