With the help of five wonderful, rain-free days of weather, the 1996 Old Threshers Reunion in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, was a tremendous success. This year's dates were August 29 through September 2. The large crowds, in upwards of 125,000, gathered on 120 acres to celebrate our agricultural history.

Let me first express Old Threshers deepest thank you to all of you who came to Mt. Pleasant to join us in this festival of steam. It was a terrific time and we wouldn't be here without you.

For those of you who have never made it, but 'always wanted to get down there for that,' mark your calendars for next year, August 28 through September 1. It is an experience you cannot miss.

The Old Threshers Reunion has been called the largest Steam Show in America and for good reason. With over 100 traction steam engines, 300 gas tractors, 1000 gas engines, eight operating historic trolleys, steam trains, horses, antique cars and trucks, carousel, stationary steam engineswhoa! Let me begin again.

The Old Threshers Reunion is home to many enthusiasts, and the whole culmination of the event is something to behold in sheer wonderment.
