On a beautiful autumn day, the Stump town Threshers opened their 1986 reunion with the National anthem, the raising of 'Old Glory' by the Cadiz Boy Scouts and prayer by Lester Nab. Following the opening ceremonies, threshing, sawing, baling, corn meal grinding and other activities got underway. The noon whistles signaled a break for dinner.

At 12:45, the Ladies Auxiliary crowned Mary Young Thresher man Queen, and Francis Young, Thresher man of the Year. They took their 'royal' ride in back of Ralph Jones' Model T truck.
