is Out and About
Going into the county and attending various local events is one of the really enjoyable tasks of the CCHA. On April 17, CCHA had a display at the Silk Hope Ruritans' Heritage Day. To say the least it was a unique situation for us.
This was the first time we have had a display
alongside a Tyke Tractor
Pull, not to mention Army parachutists landing
among old farm equipment. But best of all were
the people who visited with us that day. One
important young man was Lane Teague, pictured
receiving a Fried Rabbit book from Kenneth
Crabtree. Lance was the 3rd-5th
Grade Winner for his writing in the Silk Hope
Farm Heritage Writing Contest. Lance wrote a
“Thank You Letter to a Farmer” who just happened
to be his grandfather.
In the letter, he thanked his grandfather and the other farmers who started the annual Old Fashion Farmer’s Day on Labor Day week-end. Lance said that beside learning about farming history, it's "a time to just have fun!" If you come to Old Fashion Farmer’s Day, you might visit a CCHA booth there too.
