Queen of the Furrow - Hastings County Plowing Match & Farm Show
All six of the new panels on the theme of Agricultural History in Hastings County, were researched and prepared by Community Archives / Historical Society volunteers.
The new panels can be seen in more detail at at this link.
In addition to the new panels, the exhibit featured a slide show of the 1986 International Plowing Match and a display of local history books, a number of which were for sale. A (currently being updated) list of books and other publications on the history of Hastings County available for purchase can be found at this link.
As well as the other exhibitors, there were a couple of interesting pieces of transportation; a three wheel potty-on-the-go from Shannonville (left) and a popular paint your own slogan on a car (pictured below).
It was great to see everyone there. A big thanks to Hastings County for the space in their tent and to everyone who dropped by to say hello and/or see the exhibits.
