When speaking of the 1976 Lake Region Pioneers Threshermens Reunion, Ada Boone of Buffalo, Minnesota says, 'It reminds me of yesterday.'

A newcomer from Battle Lake, Minnesota, A. K. Botts, added, 'I heard so much about it, I just had to come out and see it myself.'

From Los Angeles, California came Louis Alsaker who described the show as, 'Wonderful, absolutely out of this world.'

Lawrence Ziedarth traveled from Sisseton, South Dakota for the Sunday morning breakfast and said of the Threshermens Reunion, 'It's pretty darn interesting.'

And a five year old Dalton, Minnesota youth added, 'I like the engines and the (Parade) clowns.'
